I loved this book and have always enjoyed Richard's work The book was excellently read too at just the right pace. Makes me look even closer at my small part of the kingdom. Thank you, I will listen again and again.

I bought this book before I realised that I knew the author from his fascinating TV programmes so little did I realise what a treat was in store.
This is as entertaining as it is informative with the thoroughness that only an academic can supply but I never felt bogged down in the detail.
A year in the small beech wood is interspersed with the lives of men who would have worked among the trees and the change in fortunes it has undergone in the fifty or so years since the current trees were planted.
An overview of the area and its history only adds to the richness of the tale and the excitement of the author on finding rare plants or specimens for his specially-made collector's cabinet is transferred to the listener.
It is well read and I know it won't be long before I immerse myself in this charming book again.
