Countryside Rambles (Yesterday's Classics) (Paperback)
A guidebook to the four seasons, calling attention to many of the more striking objects and phenomena which reveal themselves to the country rambler. The awakening of nature dominates the discussion in Spring. In Summer the focus shifts to the various habitats--woods, hedgerows, wastes, streams, heaths, bogs, marshes, fields, and meadows--and what can be found there. Fruits and seeds and preparation for winter are the main topics in Autumn. The condition of plants, animals, and trees in Winter round out the year. The 171 illustrations depicted in 46 Plates at the beginning of the original book are separated in this edition and inserted as individual illustrations where they are referenced in the text.
