This nature book by PHIL SHELLEY is generously illustrated in black and white by wildlife artist R LEONARD HOLLANDS. It grows from a fondly remembered series of books by the Methodist minister naturalist broadcaster, George Bramwell Evens, known as ROMANY (he was part gypsy). Now, Romany of the BBC is back with us, 50 years on. Based in his gypsy caravan, he takes us around the countryside opening our eyes to the marvels of nature. A book for older children and adults alike. As TERRY WAITE says in his Foreword, it is to be hoped that, through this book, many will be encouraged to take a greater interest in the preservation and development of the natural world.
