Synopsis:

Delightful accounts and keen observations taken during walks and journeys capturing month by month the essence of the seasonal changes taking place over a year in the countryside. This eclectic collection of short narratives also encompasses some interesting character portrayals ranging from an impoverished tin miner, to an Earl and his family seat, along with personal recollections and a goodly dose of nostalgia.

These imaginatively written narratives have been likened to `a series of pictures painted with words' embracing such sights as a humble Dartmoor stream where `...strands of green weed waved like the flowing tresses of a child running in the wind' to the sombre grandeur of Glen Coe where `...dreary clouds were gashed asunder permitting a crimson stain to seep through like blood from a battle wound'.

This is a book to be enjoyed by all who appreciate the countryside and the treasures it reveals, if you only take the time to stop and look.

About the Author: Bernard F Carter has a photographic background, but spent much of his working life as a Botanical Artist and Illustrator. Both professions allowed him to travel, observe and experience everything around him, thus was born his great love of the outdoors and in particular his passion for the English countryside. His imaginative and illustrative style of writing has been very much influenced by writers of the 19th and early 20th century, such as Richard Jeffries, Edward Thomas, Flora Thompson and Mary Russell Mitford to name but a few, all of who had a keen eye for intimate detail and highly descriptive prose. He is the author and illustrator of The Floral Birthday Book (Webb & Bower) and the small collection of Short Essays of the Tamar Valley. Over the years he has had numerous magazine articles published along with some poetry.
