About this title


“The Open Air” is a 1885 book by English nature writer J. R. Jefferies. John Richard Jefferies (1848 – 1887) was an English nature writer famous for his exceptional depictions of English country life in his natural history books, essays, and novels. Most of his major works were inspired by his early life spent on a small farm in Wiltshire, England. Other notable works by this author include: “The Story of My Heart (1883), an exposition of his experience of the world, and “After London” (1885), a fantastic example of classic science fiction. Contents include: “Saint Guido”, “Golden-brown”, “Wild Flowers”, “Sunny Brighton”, “The Pine Wood”, “Nature On The Roof”, “One Of The New Voters”, “The Modern Thames”, “The Single-barrel Gun”, “The Haunt Of The Hare”, “The Bathing Season”, “Under The Acorns”, “Downs”, “Forest”, “Beauty In The Country”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

About the Author:

Richard Jeffries (1848-1887) gained his first writing experience composing descriptive sketches for the North Wilts Advertiser and then became a regular reporter for the North Wilts Herald. In 1873 he published The Goddards of North Wilts, a piece of family history. The money he received for this allowed him to publish his first novel, The Scarlet Shawl. Returning to newspaper writing he contributed a series of papers on rural life to influential papers, and in 1877 a collection of these from the Pall Mall Gazette were published as Gamekeeper at Home, followed in 1879 by Wild Life in a Southern County. He continued to produce popular books about rural life, but also resumed his fictional writings. From 1881 he was afflicted by a series of debilitating illnesses and during his last two years couldn't hold a pen and was required to dictate his work to his wife.
