Newbury: NatureBureau, 2016. Octavo, photographs, fine copy in dustwrapper.
Naturalist Peter Marren presents a revealing memoir of his boyhood, boarding school and university years in this book, set in Germany, Singapore, the Midlands and Exeter. This tale of the trials and awkward initiations of growing up, and the redemptive power of nature, also delivers an evocative peek into a 'lost' England where children were free to roam the landscape.
