Product Information

Hardback, Macdonald, first edition, 1970. With C. F. Tunnicliffe's and James Broom Lynne's illustrations.
Book condition: a fine copy, with dust wrapper in a protective sleeve.

The publisher's blurb to the first edition reads: 'The stories of English wildlife which Henry Williamson wrote in North Devon after the First World War are considered by many to be his finest work. COLLECTED NATURE STORIES contains the shorter stories which he produced during that period, and, with the best-selling Henry Williamson Animal Saga, completes the collection of his nature writings in two volumes.

'Showing once again the author's remarkable attunement with the English countryside and wild life, these stories first appeared in three collections: The Peregrine's Saga and The Old Stag, reprinted here for the first time since the early 1930s, and Tales of Moorland and Estuary. The first two collections were brilliantly illustrated with woodcuts by C. F. Tunnicliffe which are reproduced in this volume, together with the drawings by Broom Lynne from Tales of Moorland and Estuary.'
