The Year in the Countryside

With Illustrations by Stanley Herbert
Frances Pitt was an esteemed British naturalist and an earlier pioneer of wildlife photography. Her life was dedicated to being outside, in the countryside, both observing and caring for wild animals, such as peacocks, otters, foxes, badgers, and the occasional roaming cat. Pitt’s knowledge of nature in Britain is deep and exact, based upon years of observation and distinguished by an intuitive understanding of the environment around her. The Year in the Countryside is her loving celebration of her home. In this concise collection, including scraperboard illustrations of Stanley Herbert, she shares her discoveries and careful observations as the seasons sweep across the countryside. Whether steeped in lush green or hushed under the shadows of winter, it is a landscape always teaming with life and interest. Written with knowledge and passion, this will be a lovely gift book for anyone who shares Pitt’s delight in nature.
