John Lister-Kaye has spent a lifetime exploring, protecting and celebrating the landscape and its wildlife. His memoir The Dun Cow Rib is the story of a boys awakening to the wonders of the natural world. Lister-Kayes joyous childhood holidays--spent scrambling through hedges and ditches after birds and small beasts, keeping pigeons in the loft and tracking foxes around the edge of the garden--were the perfect apprenticeship for his two lifelong passions: exploring the wonders of nature, and writing about them. Threaded through his adventures--from moving to the Scottish Highlands to work with Gavin Maxwell, to founding the famous Aigas Field Centre--is an elegy to his remarkable mother, and a wise and affectionate celebration of Britains natural landscape. The Dun Cow Rib joins Nan Shepherds The Living Mountain and Quarry Wood, Olivia Laings To the River, and John Muirs My First Summer in the Sierra in Canongates remarkable nature writing list.
