About this book

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. John Lubbock Lovers of the great outdoors will be inspired by this miscellany of quotations, poems and beautiful prose celebrating the natural world. From Elizabeth von Arnim to Oscar Wilde, this charming collection explores every aspect of the countryside, from the first bluebells of spring to a hilltop walk on a crisp winter's day.
