Travelling Naturalist

Nature volume 162, page 48 (10 July 1948) | Download Citation



A NEW book by Anthony Buxton is something very special for those who love Nature. He is a shrewd and careful observer, and he writes in charming, simple English prose. In this, his latest book, there is literally not one dull sentence from the beginning to the end. He permits himself a sly dig at naturalists who use long and learned words: he certainly steers clear of them himself.
