Críticas:

‘...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.’
The 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

Reseña del editor:

Reissue of J. A. Baker’s extraordinary classic of British 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 a long winter 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.

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.

Such luminaries as Richard Mabey, Robert Macfarlane, Ted Hughes and Andrew Motion have cited this as one of the most important books in 20th Century nature writing, and the bestselling author Mark Cocker has provided an introduction on the importance of Baker, his writings and the diaries – creating the essential volume of Baker's writings.
