Nature in the Garden: Wild Life at our Doors

    Article metrics


    IT is a pleasure to pick up a work such as the late Mr. Edward Step has given us in his “Nature in the Garden”. The irresistibly charming intimacy with which the author treats his subject by taking his readers on a Nature ramble around any typical English garden, whether in the town or country, will induce many to indulge in a pleasurable study of these two volumes. It is surprising what a vast amount of fact and helpful knowledge has been packed into these two small books, and after reading them through it is difficult to conceive of anyone failing to feel a greater interest in the natural history of his garden.
