H.E. Bates is a revered writer on the countryside; author of a wealth of books reflecting English life including, The Darling Buds of May. Beautifully illustrated with wood engravings by the renowned wildlife artist C.F. Tunnicliffe. The genius of H.E. Bates and C.F. Tunnicliffe was inspired by the beauty of the English countryside. This book is their tribute to its many faces: the magnificence of winter blizzards; the sudden sweet arrival of spring blossom; the heavy scent of an August garden; or the bronze glow of autumn light. Its pages are full of sharp observations which reveal the loveliness of everyday sights and fleeting moments, from the charm of butterflies and their names, to the behavior of animals and birds; the joys of gardening, the character of the people and their ever-changing landscape.
