In the Heart of the Country by H. E. Bates, illustrated by C. F. Tunnicliffe

In the Heart of the Country is a loving tribute to the many faces of the English countryside from author H. E. Bates and illustrator C. F. Tunnicliffe. Bates' evocative text summons the sights, sounds and smells of nature - the magnificence of winter blizzards, the sudden sweet arrival of spring blossom, the heavy scent of an August garden, and even the bronze glow of autumn light. Throughout, Tunnicliffe's magnificent wood engravings perfectly complement Bates' wonderful prose.
