More Information
Recalling the spirit of John Buchan and Rider Haggard, this book of ripping yarns will delight all those who love the great outdoors. A guest at a Scottish country estate is not all he seems; a solicitor with an addiction to point-to-point racing encounters a run of disastrous luck - but why is his close friend so pleased? A flyfisherman meets the disoriented Lady Anstey in a downpour and is drawn into a threatened world; and keen wildfowler Hugh McParland is enjoying his sport on the Norfolk coast when he joins a stranger on a pleasure boat and is embroiled in a game of high stakes. Here is a collection of 12 wonderful country-sports bedside stories by a talented new writer. A Countryman's Creel celebrates the British countryside in settings ranging from the Edwardian to the present day, while exploring themes of enduring relevance.
