In 2001 Mark Cocker moved to Claxton, a small village in Norfolk. In a series of daily writings spanning the course of a year he explores his relationship to the landscape he lives in, to nature and to all the living things around him. From the birds, plants, trees, mammals, hoverflies, moths, butterflies, bush crickets, grasshoppers, ants and bumblebees. Passionate, astonishing and inspiring, this book is a celebration of the wonder that lies in our everyday experience.
Claxton: Field Notes from a Small Planet is an inspirational book shortlisted for the Royal Society of Biology Book Award, the Jarrold East Anglian Book Awards and the Thwaites Wainwright Prize.
