‘Life in an English woodland, from April to April, Through the Woods is H.E. Bates enchanted hymn to the woods he knew in his youth.

H.E. Bates carried a woodland in his imagination. He fell under its spell as a boy growing up in the Midlands, becoming increasingly enchanted each time he stepped below the wooded canopy. Memory magnified its mystery over the years, enriching his stories as he grew successful as a writer. But why did this place become a part of him? What are the qualities of all woodlands that make them so special?

Set in Kent, Bates returns to those trees of his youth to breath life into the changing character of a single woodland year, revealing how precious they are to the English countryside. This edition is illustrated throughout with Agnes Miller Parker’s wonderful engravings.’ – Little Toller

‘A wood that we can see and taste and smell’ Laura Beatty
