The letters of the eminent naturalist Gilbert White are full of precise, unaffected and delightful observations of the wildlife of his beloved village of Selborne, describing the habits, colours and songs of birds from lapwings to barn-owls, wrens to house-martins. Here too are exquisite writings on trees, fossils, bats and rainfall, filled with intellectual curiosity and joy in the natural world. Generations of inhabitants have helped shape the English countryside - but it has profoundly shaped us too.It has provoked a huge variety of responses from artists, writers, musicians and people who live and work on the land - as well as those who are travelling through it.English Journeys celebrates this long tradition with a series of twenty books on all aspects of the countryside, from stargazey pie and country churches, to man's relationship with nature and songs celebrating the patterns of the countryside (as well as ghosts and love-struck soldiers).

“White's Selborne for Boys and Girls” is a classic guide to the birds of Britain, originally written for children. It offers the reader interesting and entertaining anecdotes interlaced with facts and observations from an expert. This wonderfully-written guide is perfect for introducing children to birds and bird watching, and it will also be of interest to adults with an interest in the topic. Contents include: “Approach to the Village”, “Raven”, “Hind”, “Swift”, “Peregrine Falcon”, “Snipe”, “Hoopoe”, “Bat”, “Harvest Mice”, “Chaffinch”, “Grey Wagtail”, “Weasel”, “Willow-Wren”, “Stone Curlew”, “Viper”, “Green Sandpiper”, “Jackdaw”, “Ring-Ousel”, “Nightingale”, “Chough”, “Wood-Lark”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
