A friend lent me this book.
For 5 years Neil Ansell lived alone in a remote Welsh cottage with no modern day conveniences. He doesn't give the actual location of the cottage and I suspect many readers will have spent time pouring over OS maps trying to locate it. Me included.
The story is not so much about his life there but more about the nature and wildlife that he sees on a daily basis . He describes the wildlife and their behaviors in great detail.
Its an easy read and particularly enjoyable if you're interested in birds.
