From the cover: “More Country Talk is neither a nature book nor the ramblings of a weekend cottager. It is (as one critic remarked) a revival of the art of essay, the work of a poet who lives in deep country and travels 20,000 miles a year throughout Britain, literally from Land’s End to John O’Groat’s. The result is a true likeness of what country life really does mean in our time, not only its façade but also the basic and immemorial problems of humanity. We have news of fishing, thatching, poaching, the squire, the parson, the schoolteacher, ancient monuments and modem motorways, seamen, shepherds, housewives, tramps, gardeners, farmers, commuters, foxhunters, shopkeepers. Above all, we have news of the things that seldom make news: a summer sunrise, a winter night, the look of the land itself.”
