We are delighted to welcome Johnny Scott back to Bookmark, his visits with Clarissa Dickson Wright were joyful events and he is a fascinating speaker; an author, natural historian, broadcaster, columnist, countryside campaigner, artisan snuff manufacturer, and retired hill farmer!
He wrote and co presented the BBC2 series Clarissa and the Countryman with Clarissa Dickson Wright. He has been a contributor to The Field for many years, and writes for a variety of magazines and periodicals on field sports, food, farming, travel, history, and rural affairs.
‘Sir Johnny’ will be here to talk about his new book ‘The Countryman’. Whether you are a country dweller, an urban nature lover, an amateur historian, or a budding naturalist, the variety of subjects covered is a real treasure trove. From the toad to the bumblebee, the cuckoo to the pheasant, the life cycle of the dragonfly, the attractions of the nightjar and the dove, the development of sheep breeds and the value of the cottager’s pig – these are just some of the characters of the natural world he describes.
