THE COUNTRY CHILD is a semi-autobiographical story about a girl growing up in the country. Alison Uttley has drawn on her own youth to produce memories so vivid and nostalgic that you can almost smell the honeysuckle and hear the owls calling at dusk. She writes about the small intense joys and sorrows of life on a small farm: the fun of haymaking, the sadness of favourite animals being slaughtered, and the close sweetness of Christmas celebrations in the farmhouse kitchen.Also in A Puffin Book: A Traveller in Time by Alison Uttley

Wild Life in a Southern County (Paperback, Revised ed.): Richard Jefferies Wild Life in a Southern County (Paperback, Revised ed.)
Richard Jefferies; Illustrated by C.F. Tunnicliffe
R287 R241 Discovery Miles 2 410 Save R46 (16%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Richard Jefferies (1848 1887) remains one of the most thoughtful and most lyrical writers on the English countryside. He had aspirations to make a living as a novelist, but it was his short, factually based articles for The Live Stock Journal and other magazines, drawn from a wealth of knowledge of the rural community into which he had been born, which when collected in book form brought him recognition (though not wealth), and which continued to be read and admired after his early death. Wild Life in a Southern County, published in 1879, examines the habitats of the Downs and the birds and animals which live there. Written in Jefferies' highly descriptive style, these essays reveal his deep love and knowledge of the countryside. The sense of wonder evoked by the natural world, which permeates all of Jefferies' works, is fully exemplified in this volume.

Salar the Salmon (Paperback): Henry Williamson Salar the Salmon (Paperback)
Henry Williamson; Illustrated by C.F. Tunnicliffe
R238 R225 Discovery Miles 2 250 Save R13 (5%) Special order

Swimming in from cold currents in the Atlantic, drawn by a deep impulse to reach ancestral spawning grounds inland, Salar - the 'leaper' - is a five year-old salmon returning to the stream of its birth. Salar's migration through the riverways of Devon - surviving porpoises, seals, nets, fishermen, otters, poachers and weirs - is one of nature's great journeys. Intense, brilliantly imagines, the salmon's perilous return leaves us with a vivid, unsentimental picture of how both people and wildlife rely on a river and its estuary. Originally published in 1935, Salar the Salmon combines Henry Williamson's great talent as a writer with his insight as a naturalist. This edition includes the black and white illustrations by C.F. Tunnicliffe that first appeared in 1936.

R. M Lockley; Illustrated by C.F. Tunnicliffe
R348 R282 Discovery Miles 2 820 Save R66 (19%) Special order

When R.M. Lockley settled on Skokholm, an uninhabited island off the Pembrokeshire coast, he was 24 years old. It was a boyhood dream to be with birds and flowers in some remote place', to live like Robinson Crusoe. But when war broke out in September 1939, this dream island life had to be abandoned. Knowing he may never return, Lockley began writing about the history and wildlife of his beloved island. He sent what he wrote to his friend and brother-in-law John Buxton - a naturalist captured by the Germans in Norway in 1940. These letters to a prisoner-of-war, intended to solace Buxton in his captivity, became Letters from Skokholm. Our new edition includes the illustrations by C.F. Tunnicliffe that appeared in the first edition. First published 1947 by J.M. Dent & Sons.
