The Gamekeeper At Home - Sketches of Natural History and Rural Life by Richard Jefferies

Richard Jefferies is famous for his tales of country life. `The Gamekeeper At Home` is probably his best known work, truly reflecting those by-gone days when the Gamekeeper was a vital part of rural activities. He discusses the man himself and how he fits into the community and examines his relations with his family. His area of activity is covered - the fields, the woods, the meadows and the ponds and streams. The world around him needs protection from the predators that kill the game and disturb the balance of nature. There is contact with his dogs and other animals such as rabbits and deer as well as the traditional enemies such as the fox. All parts are brought together so the reader can sense the activity of the countryside and the efforts to keep its integral parts operating in harmony. This understanding is enhanced by the masterly drawings by Charles Whymper. Originally published in 1878, we are now republishing this classic work with a new introductory biography of the author.
