Summary

21st-Century Yokel explores the way we can be tied inescapably to landscape, whether we like it or not, often through our family and our past. It's not quite a nature book, not quite a humour book, not quite a family memoir, not quite folklore, not quite social history, not quite a collection of essays, but a bit of all six. It contains owls, badgers, ponies, beavers, otters, bats, bees, scarecrows, dogs, ghosts and yes, even a few cats. What emerges from this are themes that are broader, bigger and more definitive.

Hugely enjoyable

I loved reading the book, and hearing it in Tom Cox's voice somehow adds another layer of enjoyment to it.
Recommended if you like any or all of: walking, nature, the sort of conversations that start on one topic and manage to cover lots of seemingly unrelated issues, lynx-related hypothetical mild peril.
