A title by John Richard Jefferies, who was an English nature writer, essayist and journalist. He wrote fiction mainly based on farming and rural life. In late 1877 he moved to Surbiton to be nearer the hub of literary England. His new surroundings defined him, as a country writer. Articles drawing on Jefferies' Wiltshire experiences were snapped up by the Pall Mall Gazette, then published in book form as The Gamekeeper at Home in 1878, to be followed by similar collections of essays, like Round About a Great Estate.
