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.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
