Reviews

"Tom Cox is an enchanting companion in this modern romp through treasured landscapes. I laughed and learned on every page." -- Tristan Gooley, author of The Natural Navigator and The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs
"A rich, strange, oddly glorious brew . . . Cox's writing is loose-limbed, engaging and extremely funny, and time spent in his company is time very pleasantly spent." * Guardian *
"A wonderful, witty and moving collection of essays that, together, meander somewhere between nature writing, memoir and quiet polemic. As ever, Tom Cox's musing and meditations are profound and playful; reflective and seriously readable, riffing on the difficulties of locating bat detectors in Argos one moment and painting heartbreaking eulogies to his Nan the next. A storyteller in entrancing form." -- Rob Cowen, author of Common Ground
"Like a British David Sedaris dedicated to a rural way of life, Tom Cox crafts funny and poignant stories out of observations and interactions - except his observations are of trees and his interactions are with squirrels." * AV Club *
"A hybrid of nature writing, memoir, and social history, it rambles, leisurely, through the English countryside, often pausing to ponder the relationship between people and place" * Observer *
