About this product
- DescriptionThere are few people better acquainted with the West Country than Johnny Kingdom. His kwledge of local wildlife is second to ne, but he's also a fount of kwledge when it comes to all the old stories that get passed down from generation to generation. West Country Tales is a charming collection of these local myths and legends, interwoven with many more anecdotes from Johnny himself and his forbears and friends. The atmospheric West Country landscape lends itself perfectly to dramatic tales of eerie hauntings and ghostly happenings, daring smugglers and dashing highwaymen, and many have heard of - or might even have seen - the modern-day legend that is the Beast of Exmoor. But what about the Flying Fish of Exmoor, a slippery catch of Johnny's that sailed up and over a bridge into the back seat of a passing open-top car, never to be seen again? Gently humorous and wonderfully evocative, it's only a matter of time before some of Johnny's own tales weave their way into West Country lore.
- Author BiographyJohnny Kingdom lives on the edge of Exmoor with his wife, Julie. For the past several years he has made a living running wildlife safaris on the moor and making videos of its flora and fauna. Johnny became a local celebrity with a nature series on ITV West but is now a national treasure following his BBC2 series and Christmas specials.
