'Superb. Totally fresh and vivid' - Chris Yates 'Deakin's account sings, as unruly and robust as the world he bore witness to ... Deakin's greatest gift is to make the ecologically minded life a matter of gleeful fun' Observer 'If anything this book is superior to Deakin's previous book Wildwood, which is saying something, since that was marvellous. The diary form works beautifully ... In just a few words, Deakin can delight and inspire in equal measure' - Tom Hodgkinson

This is my second reading of Notes from Walnut Tree farm. I think I preferred the first reading; this (second) reading was a closer affair and I digested more meaning. It wasn't so fleeting or as light as the first.
This second reading had me feeling that Deakin was often hypocritical - critical of other 'faceless' people stripping the land for their own personal gain to the detriment of its eco-system, whilst he himself 'stripped' Hawthorne berries and gathered them into a big IKEA bag without really having a planned use for them. Not a heinous crime of course, just something that nagged at me.
Still, I give five stars because of the sheer individualism that shines through and the sense of getting away from it all, that Deakin invokes.
