(1) IN this series of pleasantly written essays Mr. Larken gives an account of some of those features of English (and Scotch) country districts which usually appeal to nature-lovers. The author's habit of passing lightly from one topic to another but distantly connected with it produces a certain dis-jointedness of style and some needless repetitions, but, taken as a whole, his book is quite good to read, and his knack of interesting one in a disputed point and then abruptly leaving it unsettled is well calculated to stimulate personal observation on the part of his readers.
