an amazing view of country life

About this book:

Desperate to live a rural life away from the smoke in London but lacking the money to do so, Murray began a mission to battle rats and gather  herbs in a tucked away house that most people would have said was uninhabitable. In this biography from life a hundred years ago we see an amazing view of country life from a man who went on to become one of the pioneers of British nature writing. The forward is by Raynor Winn too!
