Críticas:

‘Passionately fierce but also wonderfully tender’ Andrew Motion

‘...an inspiring example to future writers, and a gift to lovers of nature.’ The Times Literary Supplement

‘... a literary masterpiece, one of the 20th century’s outstanding examples of nature writing.’ Independent

‘The Peregrine should be known as one of the finest works on nature ever written' BBC Wildlife

‘... some of the most marvellous prose of the twentieth century.’ Literary Review

‘A tour de force ... what can I do except praise writing which involves all the senses? This book goes altogether outside the bird-book into literature.’ The Sunday Times

‘A rapt and remarkable book ... his phrases have a magnesium-flare intensity.’ Observer

‘... what is certain is that The Peregrine is the most precise and poetic account of a bird – possibly of any non-human creature – ever written in English prose.’ Daily Telegraph

‘J. A. Baker's poetic prose has a hard intensity and an exquisite lyric grace that takes it far beyond the stereotypical stuff of larks ascending and questing voles. Cruelly beautiful and brutally exact, it sees the countryside anew to give us nature in the wild and in the raw.’ The Scotsman

‘Including original diaries from which The Peregrine was written and its companion volume, The Hill of Summer, this is a beautiful compendium of lyrical nature writing at its absolute best [...]. For those with an interest in the Peregrine Falcon or classic natural history writing. ‘ Guardian

Reseña del editor:

Reissue of J. A. Baker’s extraordinary classic of British nature writing, with an exclusive new afterword by Robert Macfarlane.

J. A. Baker’s extraordinary classic of British nature writing was first published in 1967. Greeted with acclaim, it went on to win the Duff Cooper Prize, the pre-eminent literary prize of the time. Luminaries such as Ted Hughes, Barry Lopez and Andrew Motion have cited it as one of the most important books in twentieth-century nature writing.

Despite the association of peregrines with the wild, outer reaches of the British Isles, The Peregrine is set on the flat marshes of the Essex coast, where J. A. Baker spent long winters looking and writing about the visitors from the uplands – peregrines that spend the winter hunting the huge flocks of pigeons and waders that share the desolate landscape with them.

This new edition of the timeless classic, published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its first publication, features an afterword by one of the book’s greatest admirers, Robert Macfarlane.
