Countryside Treasury

Rural life both past and present has never been depicted with such perfectly matched pictures and words.

Drawing on the vast wealth of material, from fiction, poetry and fact, Dick King-Smith, best known as the author of The Sheep Pig, has chosen a timeless, classic collection featuring works from Joan Aiken, Ted Hughes, Thomas Hardy, Kenneth Grahame, Laurie Lee and many more.

Illustrations of breathtaking beauty and depth from Christian Birmingham combine to produce an exceptional quality anthology.
