Countess Badeni is well-known in Wiltshire and Gloucestershire for two books of local and social history, which describe the villages around her home at Norton near Malmesbury. She is also a very accomplished essayist, as this delightful collection of 36 short pieces about rural life, its people and creatures, demonstrates. Most were published intermittently over many years in Country Life; all are beautifully crafted, finely observed depictions of the countryside, in Wiltshire and much further afield. The text is complemented by woodcuts by Bewick and his school.
