9780007448708: Nightwalk: A Journey to the Heart of Nature

Chris Yates, one of Britain's most insightful and lyrical writers, raises his gaze from his beloved rivers and ponds and takes us on a mesmerizing tour of the British countryside. "Last November, the sudden appearance of a hundred wintering ravens in a wood in Cranborne Chase, where I have lived for twenty-five years without seeing more than a few solitary specimens, reminded me that there is always something ready to flame up again in the landscape, just when it seemed the fire had gone out." In Nightwalk we accompany Chris Yates on the most magical of journeys into the very heart of the British countryside. His acute observation of the natural world and ability to transcend it exquisitely sets Chris apart from his contemporaries. Time slows down for a deeper intimacy with nature, and through Chris's writing we hear every rustle of a leaf, every call of a bird. He widens the power of our imagination, heightening our senses and revealing beauty in the smallest details.

About the Author:

Chris Yates is an angler, photographer, tea connoisseur and prolific writer with contributions to the Idler magazine and former Editor of Waterlog magazine. He is a celebrated British fisherman and author of How To Fish, which has variously been described as containing 'more good sense than all those effete-aesthete fishing narratives put together' (Conde Nast Traveller) and as 'a gem of a book' (The Field). He is also known for his other books - Falling in Again, The Secret Carp, The Deepening Pool, Casting at the Sun, River Diary and Four Seasons - and the BBC2 series A Passion for Angling.
