Baker’s extraordinary classic writing was first published in 1967. Greeted with acclaim, it has been cited as one of the most important books in 20th century nature writing.
The Peregrine is set on the flat marshes of the Essex coast, where Baker spent long winters looking and writing about the peregrines that spend their time hunting the huge flocks of pigeons and waders that share the desolate landscape with them.
This new edition of the timeless classic, published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first publication, features an afterword by one of the book’s greatest admirers, Robert Macfarlane.
