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

How to navigate by the stars, attract butterflies to a garden, build the perfect bonfire, and bake one's own bread—an indispensable guide to everything people knew and loved before we went inside and turned on the TV In a world of traffic congestion, supermarket shopping, and 24-hour internet access, it is easy to feel disconnected from the beauty and rhythms of the natural world. This is the book for anyone who has 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. Readers will learn how to predict the weather just by looking at the sky, how to forage for food, and how to make cider. From differentiating types of owls to gardening by the phases of the moon, and from curing a cold to brewing ale, this lovely guide is packed with instructions and lists, ancient customs, and old wives tales, making it an indispensable guide to countryside lore.
