ISBN: 1841144010
AUTHOR: David Edelsten
Dorset Diaries
Dorset Diaries
  • Description

With the commonsense of a countryman, the clarity of a soldier and the poetry of a born writer, David Edelsten tells of horses and haymaking, hounds and hunting, flowers and farmers, Sunday matins and the song of birds, all making up the glorious tapestry of life in rural England.

This is not the country as some imagine inadequately – fondly or otherwise – but a sensitive and utterly memorable record of genuine people and authentic circumstance by a man who lives at their heart.

For thirteen years David Edelsten wrote a much-loved column in Country Life, chronicling the life of his household and village – Glanvilles Wootton, in Dorset. ‘You would be hard put to it to say exactly where the heart of our village lies, or to name its special talent, but we who live here think of ourselves as being among God’s elect.’ For the first time, all of these remarkable pieces are gathered together in book form.
