'The Father of us all' - Ted Hughes
Edward Thomas has been revered for over a century as one of Britain's greatest poets. His fiction, however, has been almost forgotten. This revelatory collection reveals ghost-haunted landscapes, brutal slivers of country life, richly-drawn pen portraits and even a touching ode to a fondly remembered dog. Powerful and compelling, these short stories possess the same sublime beauty as the author's nature-writing and poetry.
