"Notes from Walnut Tree Farm" is a collection of writing by Roger Deakin. For the last six years of his life, Roger Deakin kept notebooks in which he wrote his daily thoughts, impressions, feelings and observations about and around his home, Walnut Tree Farm. Collected here are the very best of these writings, capturing his extraordinary, restless curiosity about nature as well as his impressions of our changing world. "Marvellous, wonderful, lovely, remarkable ...to be read and reread and treasured". (Elizabeth Jane Howard, "Daily Mail"). "Very funny, sharp-eyed. To look at the world through Deakin's eyes was to see somewhere that was more wonderful than it often appears". ("Sunday Telegraph"). "Thoughtful and invigorating, full of humour, timeless ...will take its place among the classics of Nature diaries ...to be read alongside Frances Kilvert, Gilbert White, and Dorothy Wordsworth". ("Mail on Sunday"). "Gentle, straight, honest, inquisitive, funny, melancholic". ("Spectator"). "So busy and bustling with life". ("Observer"). "A secular saint". ("The Times"). Roger Deakin, who died in August 2006, shortly after completing the manuscript for "Wildwood", was a writer, broadcaster and film-maker with a particular interest in nature and the environment. He lived for many years in Suffolk, where he swam regularly in his moat, in the river Waveney and in the sea, in between travelling widely through the landscapes he writes about in "Wildwood". He is the author of "Waterlog", "Wildwood" and "Notes from Walnut Tree Farm".
