An unforgettable poetic account of a self-effacing author’s mysterious encounters with peregrine falcons over a single winter, J. A. Baker’s The Peregrine is widely regarded as one of the greatest classics of English natural history writing. We are delighted to welcome distinguished Norfolk-based nature writer Mark Cocker to introduce a definitive new edition of this remarkable work, which places it alongside its companion volume, The Hill of Summer – an equally mesmerising evocation of  Baker’s beloved Chelmer Valley in rural Essex.
