9780091932442: Red Sky at Night: The Book of Lost Country Wisdom

Ever wondered how to predict the weather just by looking at the sky?

Or wanted to attract butterflies to your garden?

Is there a knack to building the perfect bonfire?

And how exactly do you race a ferret?

In this world of traffic tailbacks, supermarket shopping and 24-hour internet access, it's easy to feel disconnected from the beauty and rhythms of the natural world.

If you have ever gazed in awe at stars in the night's sky, tried to catch a perfect snowflake or longed for the comfort of a roaring log fire, then this is the book for you. From spotting Britain's five kinds of owl to gardening by the phases of the moon, and from curing a cold to brewing your own ale, Red Sky at Night is packed with instructions and lists, ancient customs and old wives tales, making it an indispensable guide to countryside lore.

Review:

"Both a fascinating read and an indispensible guide... a truly inspiring book" ( Daily Express)

"In a market cluttered with gifty nostalgia books this one stands head and shoulders above the others... Outstanding" ( Bath Life)

From the Author:

Hallo, I'm Jane, and I wrote Red Sky at Night. I really enjoyed writing it and I hope you will enjoy reading it too. It's a compendium of facts, figures, fables and fallacies about the British countryside, from the light-hearted to the serious. If you've ever wanted to know how to race a ferret or win at conkers, how to make your own marmalade, which are the brightest stars in the night sky, how to tell if there are fairies at the bottom of your garden or which are the best woods for burning in log fires, this is the book for you.
