Within “A Year in the Fields”, Burroughs describes what an English field looks like in spring, summer autumn and winter, exploring the effect the four seasons have on the field and its inhabitants. Both charming and interesting, this volume is highly recommended for all lovers of nature writing, and it would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Contents include: “John Burroughs A Biographical Sketch”, “A Snow-storm”, “Winter Neighbors” “A Spring Relish”, “April”, “Birch”, “Browsings”, “A Bunch Of Herbs”, “Autumn Tides”, and “A Sharp Lookout”. John Burroughs (1837 – 1921) was an American naturalist, essayist, and active member of the U.S. conservation movement. Burroughs' work was incredibly popular during his lifetime, and his legacy has lived on in the form of twelve U.S. Schools named after him, Burroughs Mountain, and the John Burroughs Association—which publicly recognizes well-written and illustrated natural history publications. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
