For a full year, Richard Adams (Watership Down) kept a day-to-day record of what he saw and heard outdoors. With his Welsh collie Tetter and, occasionally, with friends, he tramped the countryside on the Isle of Man in all kinds of weather.
Most entries are brief, but they reflect Adams's trained eye and wide interests, which include plants, animals and landscapes.
