Badger and Skylark: Two new Encounters in the Wild titles

October 11, 2016

Supremely talented nature writer Jim Crumley returns with two new additions to his hugely popular Encounters in the Wild series, in which he gets up close and personal with Britain’s favourite animals.

Badger and Skylark will be released on October 20, taking the series up to six titles; other Encounters in the Wild books are Barn Owl, Fox, Hare and Swan.

All half dozen titles are beautiful hardback gift editions featuring stunning artwork by Carry Akroyd.

In each of the books Jim – with his inimitable passion and vision – relives memorable encounters with some of our best-loved native species, offering intimate insights into their extraordinary lives.

The new Encounters in the Wild books come hot on the heels of The Nature of Autumn, in which Jim paints a deeply personal portrait of a moody and majestic British autumn, telling the compelling story of the unfolding season through September, October and November.
