  • Follows a year through the seasons, exploring the habits of the Highland animals, and in particular the birds – the author’s gods of the morning – for whom he has nourished a lifelong passion.
  • Lyrical natural history writing at it’s best. First published last year and rightly celebrated.
  • From his home deep in a Scottish glen, John Lister-Kaye has watched and come to understand intimately the movements and habits of the animals, and in particular the birds, that inhabit the wild and magnificent Highlands. Drawing on a lifetime of observation, Gods of the Morning is his wise and affectionate celebration of the British countryside and the birds that come and go through the year. It is also a lyrical reminder of the relationship we have lost with the seasons and a call to look afresh at the natural world around us.
