A year's diary of life in Devon, prior to the author's leaving Devonshire to farm on the east coast. The passing of the days and what they bring, bits of family life, observations of animal, bird and fish life, memories of the war, reminiscences of literary friends (T. E. Lawrence, Conrad, Barrie, etc.), writings, letters from friends, enemies created by his books and radio talks, phases of country life and neighbors. Good reading that should have definite appeal for nature lovers. Check those who liked Sala, the Salmon, Tarka the Otter, etc. Also Peattie and Hudson fans.
