    PDF Melissa Harrison ó Rain Kindle ¼ ó rain book, Rain EpubI won’t set out for a walk in the rain unless it’s unavoidable but I don’t mind if the rain comes on while I’m walking In the countryside other walkers disappear uickly when the rain comes on and so it’s easier to find a solitary spot This book contains four walks in different parts of the south of England I found the first walk in Wicken Fen disappointing It’s the sort of nature writing that just reels off what’s being observed Without the necessary background knowledge it’s frankly boring I had to steel myself to continue reading but the other three walks are better mainly because they branch off into other topics social history poetry etc and so I found them interestingThere is a glossary at the back of the book of 100 terms used to describe rain in different parts of the UK I hadn’t heard of many of them and enjoyed reading them One dreich pronounced dreech and meaning bleak miserable or grey was recently chosen as the favourite Scots word of 201

    PDF Melissa Harrison ó Rain Kindle ¼ ó rain book, Rain EpubAnd anyway it seems to me that if you're only ever out on sunny days you only see half the picture and remain somehow untested and callow; whereas discovering that you can withstand all the necessary and ordinary kinds of weather creates a satisfying feeling of euanimity in the face of life's vicissitudes that may or may not be rational but is real nonetheless I loved this book I only wish it were longer

    PDF Melissa Harrison ó Rain Kindle ¼ ó rain book, Rain EpubI’m someone who has walked wild places often in rain for many years so this book looked a good match to me I wasn’t disappointed This book Rain Four Walks in English Weather by Melissa Harrison is not long but manages to get an awful lot in between the covers There are only four walks; Wicken Fen in Winter Shropshire Spring The Darent Valley Summer and Dartmoor in Autumn This means that in addition to some very varied areas and scenery seasons are neatly worked in too In addition there is a section with “100 words concerning rain” which I found very interesting and enjoyed A li
