AUTHOR: Hope Bourne
A Moorland Year
A Moorland Year
  • Description
  • Reviews
  • Related

For more than five decades Hope Bourne lived in wild and isolated places on Exmoor, walking many miles to explore its remote fastnesses and making notes and sketches of its wildlife and landscapes.

A Moorland Year is a journal of her impressions, seen through a countrymanís eye and recorded with a poetís ear, enhanced by the authorís evocative line drawings of the Exmoor scene.

A Moorland Year is a worthy successor to Hope Bourneís widely praised Living on Exmoor and Wild Harvest.

Hope Bourne was born in Oxford in 1918 but brought up at Hartland in North Devon. She lived on Exmoor for some 60 years, for two decades in a caravan at Ferny Ball near Withypool. Growing or shooting her own food, she earned her living as a writer, publishing four books in her lifetime as well as pamphlets and a regular newspaper column. In later years three television documentaries about her life brought her to the attention of an even wider public. Hope Bourne died in August 2010 a few days short of her 92nd birthday.

Imprint: Exmoor Books. ISBN 978 0 86183 253 8, hardback, 214x138mm, 144 pages. Published 1993, reprinted 2002 and May 2015.
