Book review: ‘A Year in the Woods: The Diary of a Forest Ranger’ by Colin Elford

A rather special book from a forest ranger.

A Year in the WoodsThis book documents one year in the life of a forest ranger in southern England. It revolves mainly around deer-culling, but don't let that put you off. Colin Elford is the real McCoy, and writes as such: plain woodsman's words, with no pretentious arty-fartiness. I really enjoyed it. Lovely illustrations too.

Writer and photographer Richard Carter, FCD is the founder of the Friends of Charles Darwin. He lives in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.WebsiteFacebookTwitterNewsletterBooks
