An Exceptional Woman

The Writings of Heather Tanner

Ed. Rosemary Devonald

Heather Tanner (1903–1993) is best remembered as an environmental campaigner and the author of four exquisite books about Wiltshire and its countryside, illustrated by her husband, the artist Robin Tanner. This selection of her work, chosen by her friend Rosemary Devonald, draws on unpublished essays, letters and poems to offer new insight into the life of this remarkable woman, and into the ways and customs of a bygone rural society. Slightly off-mint.
