    Description

    21st-Century Yokel explores the way we can be tied inescapably to landscape, whether we like it or not, often through our family and our past. It's not quite a nature book, not quite a humour book, not quite a family memoir, not quite folklore, not quite social history, not quite a collection of essays, but a bit of all six. It contains owls, badgers, ponies, beavers, otters, bats, bees, scarecrows, dogs, ghosts and yes, even a few cats. What emerges from this are themes that are broader, bigger and more definitive.

    Excellent book

    I’ve just finished this, and I’m sad that it’s done. Wonderful stories of trees, walks, cats, swimming, family, and finding one’s place in the world.

    An engaging storyteller!

    I love Tom Cox's books and this was no exception. It was wonderful to hear his stories and musings in his own voice, and his impressions of the other folks, especially LOUD DAD, drew me in to this place so far away from my American southwest in so many ways. I am hoping to hear Tom read his Help The Witch and Ring The Hill soon!

    Absolutely endearing

    Tom is insightful, illustrative, and paints an intricately detailed picture of the natural world he adores. His writing communicates how the landscape influences his thinking, while also giving an excellent sales pitch for getting out and experiencing the outdoors in general. If you live somewhere that the great outdoors doesn’t color your world much, this book is a good primer as to why others love it so much. Likewise, if you spend time bonding with the landscape, climates, and wildlife where you live, you’ll find yourself nodding in agreement with tom quite often. Witty, humorous, and honest in his expression of personal points of view - does not disappoint. I find myself upping the level of my own mental narrative after reading one of tom’s descriptive and insightful books, too.

    a wonderful collection of thoughts and musings.

    listening to Tom stories is like sitting down to a cup of tea with a good friend and catching up. listening was delightful and endearing, and I will definitely be listening to this one over and over again.
