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.
