Richard Jefferies remains one of the most thoughtful and
most lyrical writers on the English countryside. Best known for his articles
and stories published in the Live Stock
Journal, he draws from a wealth of knowledge of the rural community into
which he had been born.
Here he examines the habitats of the Downs and the birds and
animals that live there. Written in Jefferies’ highly descriptive style, the
essay conveys a sense of wonder evoked by the natural world.
