The Peregrine: The Hill of Summer & Diaries - The Complete Works of J. A. Baker
This is a reissue of J A Baker's extraordinary classic of British nature writing.
The Peregrine is set on the flat marches of the Essex coast, where J A Baker spent a long winter looking and writing about these visitors from the uplands. Peregrines spend the winter hunting the huge flocks of pigeons and waders that share the desolate landscape with them.
Also includes original diaries from which The Peregrine, and its companion volume ' The Hill of Summer, were written. A compendium of lyrical nature writing at its best.
