About this title


Physical description; 158 p : ill. (some col.) ; 24 cm. Subjects; Adams, Richard 1920-2016 - Diaries. Natural history - Isle of Man.

From Library Journal:

Richard Adams, known chiefly for his novel Watership Down , here delights us with his observations on daily walks on the Isle of Man, where he lives. On short trips to London, the Lake District, Anglesey and on longer expeditions to Denmark and Australia, he has his eyes open to the birds, flowers, and animals encountered in the course of the day. Everywhere he finds there is always something to enjoy. At home with his Welsh collie, Tetter, and often accompanied by enthusiastic walking companions, he makes everyday observances special with allusions to literature and bits of humor ("Tetter and I sploshed four miles in gum boots. I wore the gum boots"). He is particular about scientific names and not content until he has made a satisfactory identification. Delicate watercolors by John Lawrence greatly enhance the book.
