About this book

Acutely sensitive to rhythms of the countryside, Edward Thomas's lyrical, passionate, and sometimes political writing merges natural history with folk culture, and gives us a free-form record of the feelings and observations of one of the great poets of the English language.

"Perhaps the best way to think of The South Country is as a dream-map – by which I mean an act of imaginative cartography, a chart of longing and loss projected onto actual terrain"
– Robert MacFarlane
