Skylarks are the heralds of our countryside. The spirit of English pastoralism, they inspire poets, composers and farmers alike.

In the trenches of the First World War they were a reminder of the chattering meadows of home. History has seen us poeticise the bird, but also capture and eat them. We watch as they climb the sky, delight in their joyful singing, and yet we harm them too. In The Soaring Life of the Lark, John Lewis-Stempel explores the breathtaking heights and the struggle to survive of one of Britain’s most iconic songbirds.

‘Lewis-Stempel is a fourth-generation farmer gifted with an extraordinary ability to write prose that soars and sings’ Daily Mail
