Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Calming, thought-provoking, poetic and honest, Notes from Walnut Tree Farm is a collection of writing and musing by documentary-maker, environmentalist and author of Waterlog Roger Deakin.

For the last six years of his life, Roger Deakin kept notebooks. In them, he wrote his daily thoughts, impressions, feelings and observations about and around his Suffolk home, Walnut Tree Farm. Collected here are the very best of these writings, capturing his extraordinary, restless curiosity about nature as well as his impressions of our changing world. 

Perfect for fans of Robert Macfarlane and Colin Tudge, this is a book that fills listeners with a desire to explore the world around them.

My favourite book of all time

I was so happy to see Rogers work as audio books, I’ve loved this book for years. It’s just beautifully written.
