Nature Writing

A celebration of the English countryside in Spring, as Bates takes a "favourite journey" across Kent and Sussex to Brighton. Evoking both W.H. Hudson and Edward Thomas, Bates finds no evidence that the landscape is "in danger of demise or decay," and instead experiences it with "fresh admiration" and an "abiding magic" each year. In The Countryman (Summer 1972, lxxvii, 2, pp. 41-45).
