"My book of the year. Meadowland is a seasonal journey of discovery, a pilgrimage that nurtures the soul and gives meaning to life; all life. Each beautifully crafted sentence provides a stepping-stone to absorb and understand the land, with the writer's lyrical voice acting as guide and trusty staff as well as illuminating the mind's eye with wonderful imagery and perceptive literary devices." (Stuart Winter Sunday Express)


Fascinating ... Books have been written about entire countries that contain a less interesting cast of characters than Lewis-Stempel's account of one field on the edge of Wales. Foxes, red kites and voles become as intricately shaded as characters in an HBO drama, the readers' sympathies swinging between them and their adversaries. Not every English meadow contains such a vast variety of wildlife as Lewis-Stempel's, and he's lucky to live somewhere so unspoilt, but his immense, patient powers of observation - along with a flair for the anthropomorphic - mean he is able to offer a portrait of animal life that's rare in its colour and drama.

Lewis-Stempel's eye for detail and the poetic imagery of sentences such as "Behind me the river shouts with the abandon of a football crowd" or "Someone has stirred the clouds into milk pudding" are reminiscent of the late, brilliant Roger Deakin...

There is barely a creature in Meadowland that I didn't learn at least one interesting new fact about (the occasional tendency of badgers to hold funerals for one another is a particular favourite).

" (Tom Cox Observer)

"Engaging, closely-observed and beautiful ... this author's deep love of the world around him is as inspiring as it is entertaining. This wonderful book ... is most of all, a moving hymn of gratitude from a man so rooted, so full of joy that he likens his land to a cathedral and knows that: 'To stand alone in a field in England and listen to the morning chorus of the birds is to remember why life is precious'." (Bel Mooney Daily Mail)

"[JLS] has a sharp eye, a fluent pen and that omnivorous, innocently English curiosity about wild creatures... There are lyrical moments aplenty but this is not the cloying 'regardez-moi maman' nature writing. JLS's tone is level, involved, humorous and even self-deprecating... This is a rich, interesting book, generously studded with raisins of curious information." (Angus Clarke The Times)

"My holiday reading: [John Lewis-Stempel] knows not only all about the different kinds of life in such a place and how they all fit together, but can also write so vividly." (Philip Pullman The Guardian)


A love song to the land. A magical month by month observation through parted grass of the flora and fauna of a meadow.

HASH(0x9383130c) von 5 Sternen written with passion and great knowledge 7. Juli 2014
Von Rupert Lewis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It is always a pleasure reading about something that is written with such passion. The balance between farming and a love of nature is often a tricky and imprecise area, whatever your thoughts on either subject, the author maintains a clear understanding of how he, and his farm, fits in to the ecology of the meadow. He is very knowledgeable and extremely passionate about the flora and fauna, this coupled with an easy writing style meant that the book was easy to read. Personally prefer woodland and not a big fan of sheep but, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

HASH(0x93831558) von 5 Sternen ... is a very enjoyable piece of nature writing with great detail and an engaging style 29. April 2015
Von Priscilla Manwaring - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very enjoyable piece of nature writing with great detail and an engaging style. It was easy to identify with the author and to like him and his family. It is reminiscent in some ways of Ronald Blythe. The meaning of the land to those who farm it comes through clearly.

Von R. Taormina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a bird's-eye, rabbit's-eye, vixen's-eye, worm's-eye view of the four seasons of a an English meadow. This is an observational gem that can relate to any meadow or, for that matter any piece of ground. It goes well beyond looking and into the realm of seeing and hearing.
HASH(0x93831af8) von 5 Sternen Great Read for Nature Lovers 23. Oktober 2015
Von John P. Schnitzler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Personal and universal, well-written and informative with a strong narrator's voice guiding the reader over the meadow, brimming with life. One of the best books about the natural world I've ever read. The author's writing is quite magical; transports readers into the field through the months of the year. Exquisite. Plan to order a few more as gifts.
