Book review: ‘At the Water's Edge: A Personal Quest for Wildness’ by John Lister-Kaye

Famous nature writer's observations from his daily circular walk.

At the Water's EdgeJohn Lister-Kaye has been taking the same circular walk up to a small hill loch and back for the last 30 years. At the Water's Edge records his thoughts and observations made during the walk, including some of his more memorable encounters with the local wildlife.

It's a gentle, entertaining book, which will be enjoyed by anyone who loves British nature.

“…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.”
