A few months ago a GR friend reviewed this book and it sounded like just the sort of thing I d love Sadly when trying to locate a copy I found out it isn t readily available in the US I m still baffled as to why an e book isn 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 is a keen observer who has the patience and the passion to see in nature what so many others would miss He has a deep rooted connectedness to the land throughout every season His writing is exuisite and by use of all of his senses he transports his readers to that English meadow 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 them in the future As a closing thought I will share the following To stand alone in a field in England and listen to the morning chorus of the birds is to remember why life is preciousI will proselytize on behalf of the dawn chorus If you rise at dawn in May you can savour the world before the pandemonium din of the Industrial Revolution and 247 shoppingThere s an evening chorus too and it is best enjoyed on a day like this when the light is seductive in white veils and there is enough moisture in the dusk air to intensify the floral incense of the spring meadowOh the joy to be alive in England in Meadowland once May is here
