Reviews

A classic of scholarship and imagination...A monumental work, but it is written with humanity, dignity, concern and a great deal of humour - TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENTAs quirky and rewarding as the English countryside itself ... it is full of answers to questions that others have not had the wit to ask - ECONOMISTOne thing is certain: no one would be wise to write further on our natural history, or to make films about it, without thinking very hard about what is contained in these authoritative pages - COUNTRY LIFE
