A Year in the Woods: The Diary of a Forest Ranger by Colin Elford
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Colin Elford spends his days alone - alone but for the deer, the squirrels, the rabbits, the birds and the many other creatures inhabiting the woods. From the crisp coldness of January, through the excitement of spring and the warmth of summer, and back into the dampness of the autumn and the chill winds of winter, we accompany the forest ranger as he goes about his work - stalking in the early-morning darkness, putting an injured fallow buck out of its misery, watching stoats kill a hare, observing owls, and simply enjoying the outdoors. "A Year in the Woods" is an invigorating look at nature through a forest ranger's eyes and an enthralling journey deep into the woods. It includes a delightful 'Preamble' by Craig Taylor.
