The Seasons : A Celebration of the English Year Paperback



Shortlisted for the Katharine Briggs Folklore Award and runner-up for Countryfile Book of the Year.

For millennia, the passing seasons and their rhythms have marked our progress through the year.

But what do they mean to us now that we lead increasingly atomised and urban lives and our weather becomes ever more unpredictable or extreme?In this splendidly rich and lyrical celebration of the English seasons, Nick Groom investigates the trove of strange folklore and often stranger fact they have accumulated over the centuries and shows how tradition and our links with nature still have a vital role to play in all our lives.
