Gods of the Morning

A Bird's Eye View of a Highland Year

by John Lister-Kaye
Paperback
Publication Date: 27/04/2016
RRP  $29.75 $29.50

A lyrical celebration of the British countryside from one of the UK's best-known nature writers.

From his home deep in a Scottish glen, John Lister-Kaye has watched and come to understand intimately the movements and habits of the animals, and in particular the birds, that inhabit the wild and magnificent Highlands. Drawing on a lifetime of observation, Gods of the Morning is his wise and affectionate celebration of the British countryside and the birds that come and go through the year. It is also a lyrical reminder of the relationship we have lost with the seasons and a call to look afresh at the natural world around us.

'No one writes more movingly, or with such transporting poetic skill, about encounters with wild creatures. Its pages course with sympathy, humility, and wisdom' - Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk
