The Keen Countryman's Miscellany is a selection of entries on everything that the true countryman - or woman - would like to know.

Here you will find all things rural, from profiles of great farmers through history like Thomas Coke and King George III to snippets about wood-burning stoves, vermin control, hedge-laying and wild cat sightings.

Readers with a schoolboy mentality will enjoy pieces on blowing up wasp nests, how to get fish drunk and rules for conducting a proper snowball fight. Packed with a gloriously random selection of rustic ephemera, this beautifully produced volume is the perfect gift for the coutryman with an enquiring mind and a sense of humour.

This is Peter Holt's latest title in the bestselling 'Keen' series.
