The Dun Cow Rib : A Very Natural Childhood, Hardback Book

The Dun Cow Rib : A Very Natural Childhood Hardback

Description

John Lister-Kaye has spent a lifetime exploring, protecting and celebrating the British landscape and its wildlife.

His memoir The Dun Cow Rib is the story of a boy's awakening to the wonders of the natural world. Lister-Kaye's joyous childhood holidays - spent scrambling through hedges and ditches after birds and small beasts, keeping pigeons in the loft and tracking foxes around the edge of the garden - were the perfect apprenticeship for his two lifelong passions: exploring the wonders of nature, and writing about them.

Threaded through his adventures - from moving to the Scottish Highlands to work with Gavin Maxwell, to founding the famous Aigas Field Centre - is an elegy to his remarkable mother, and a wise and affectionate celebration of Britain's natural landscape.
