The Dun Cow Rib

Sir John Lister-Kaye

The Dun Cow Rib

Shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize 2018

John Lister-Kaye has spent a lifetime exploring, protecting and celebrating the British landscape and its wildlife.

Lister-Kaye’s joyous childhood holidays – spent scrambling through hedges and ditches after birds and small beasts, keeping pigeons in the loft and tracking foxes around the edge of the garden – were the perfect apprenticeship for his two lifelong passions: exploring the wonders of nature, and writing about them.

Warm, wise and full of wonder, The Dun Cow Rib is a captivating coming of age tale by one of the founding fathers of nature writing.
