Walter John Campbell Murray was well known in Horam, East Sussex, as the Head Teacher of Murray's School. He was also a devoted naturalist, writer, photographer, lecturer and radio broadcaster. His best known book, 'Copsford', still has a small but devoted cult following. In The Green Man of Horam Tom Wareham presents an outline of Walter Murray's life and work, and argues that a close reading of Murray's books provides strong and hitherto unrecognised evidence of his mystical relationship with nature.
"An illuminating and important investigation into the 'lost' work and life of Walter Murray, landscape mystic, writer, broadcaster and pioneering 'nature writer' – if ever there was one. In this considered and thoroughly researched portrait, Wareham pieces together his writing and biography with a commendable passion, uncovering – in this time of schism – the thoughts and feelings of a man who saw ' [...] the brotherhood of life in all living things'."
– Rob Cowen (Common Ground, Skimming Stones: And Other Ways of Being in the Wild)
