With an artists eye for the right image and a unique way with words, Larkin educates and inspires. Whether the subject is wildflowers and how they tell the time of day- wild food (complete with recipes)--from fruits and nuts to weeds and mushrooms- or wild animals and how to identify their tracks in snow or earth, Larkin brings to all these and more an infectious love for living with nature and its ways. Traditional Gardening magazine praised Countrys Wisdoms fascinating bits of history, lore, practical advice and other interesting information wrapped into a lyric text that forms a paean to country living. Country magazine placed it at the top of our wish list...like a letter from a knowledgeable friend whose reflections and observations can by turns amaze and amuse.
