A lovely book I think the dea of a micro approach to nature concentrating on a single field Say Youll Remember Me is a really effective way of revealing through the seasons the different wildlife responses to a changing environment What we learns just how adaptable nature Accidental Bodyguard is despite the genuine fears that we have for the planetn the face of climate change deniers like Trump and his lk and the morons n the Atlantic Bridge wing of the UK Conservative PartyStempel has written a number of high uality nature books but Mehr als das in my estimation thiss the best I shall take away the thought that every corner of our world however humble has ts own dynamics and s Abby and the Bachelor Cop importantn Eye to Eye its own right Sometimes we look and do not see the daily dramas played out on just one patch of earth Even hoary old professional conservationists like me need reminding from time to time of the wonders all around us Read this and regain your senses The old ways do not seem so madn an ancient landscape where I can barely see one electric lightand I can hold Accidentally Expecting in my cupped hand the eternal peace of night This books so beautifully written that I Know I Will Be know I will be down his other books This s a gorgeous homage to the traditional English meadow I was trying to read this book slowly and follow Lewis Stempel through his year on the Lower Meadow of his home n Herefordshire However I could only stretch Herzrivalen it out two months becauset s such a pleasure to read Lewis Stempel s a man of the land and a poet at heart He spends so much time walking the night meadow that I half expected him to turn nto a werewolf A few months ago a GR friend reviewed this book and t sounded like just the sort of thing I d love Sadly when TRYING TO LOCATE A COPY I to locate a copy I out t sn t readily available n the US I m still baffled as to why an e book sn t available but I also know nothing about copyright and publishing laws and business arrangements When I traveled to the UK a few weeks ago this book and a few others were top on the list of souvenirs to bring home This book was a pure joy to read John Lewis Stempel s a keen observer who has the patience and the passion to see n nature what so many others would miss He has a deep rooted connectedness to the land throughout every season His writing s exuisite and by use of all of his senses he transports his readers to that English meadow Always Look Twice in Herefordshire In an age when so many books about the earth are bleak and leave readers with a feeling of despair Lewis Stemple manages to addresses ecological concerns but keeps the focus on celebrating the beauty and natural rhythms of his field I dog eared at least 3 dozen pages and underlined numerous passages so I could easily find.
