Image of Sir John Lister-Kaye with The Dun Cow Rib

One of Britain’s best-known naturalists, Sir John Lister-Kaye writes with an at once observant and poetic eye on the world around us. His new memoir, The Dun Cow Rib, details his ongoing endeavour to protect both the British landscape and the wildlife that inhabits it.

Beginning in hedgerows on boyhood holidays, and providing insights on Lister-Kaye’s extensive career — from his work with Gavin Maxwell to his foundation of the esteemed Aigas Field Centre near Inverness — The Dun Cow Rib is a work of passion and loss that offers up a tender and experienced wisdom. This memoir recounts a life lived with all the tribulations and richness of nature, providing a stunning weave of elegy, observation, and understanding.

We are absolutely delighted to welcome such an enthusiastic and engaging speaker back to the bookshop. This is certain to be a most fascinating evening for which we most certainly hope you will join us.

How our event book vouchers work

The full price of your voucher is an advance book deposit against a copy of the book featured at the event, which also guarantees admittance for one person. Event book vouchers are redeemable at any point up to and including the day of the event, but not afterwards.
