Publisher's Summary

21st-Century Yokel explores the way we can be tied inescapably to landscape, whether we like it or not, often through our family and our past. It's not quite a nature book, not quite a humour book, not quite a family memoir, not quite folklore, not quite social history, not quite a collection of essays, but a bit of all six. It contains owls, badgers, ponies, beavers, otters, bats, bees, scarecrows, dogs, ghosts and yes, even a few cats. What emerges from this are themes that are broader, bigger and more definitive.

Excellent book

I’ve just finished this, and I’m sad that it’s done. Wonderful stories of trees, walks, cats, swimming, family, and finding one’s place in the world.

Hugely enjoyable

I loved reading the book, and hearing it in Tom Cox's voice somehow adds another layer of enjoyment to it.
Recommended if you like any or all of: walking, nature, the sort of conversations that start on one topic and manage to cover lots of seemingly unrelated issues, lynx-related hypothetical mild peril.

Another great book from Tom Cox

Any additional comments?

My New Year resolution was to stop listening to the Today programme in the morning as it just wound me up for the rest of the day. This audiobook was the perfect antidote. Gentle tales of walks, folklore and family. Having Tom reading it brought the book to life, particularly the LOUD DAD sections. Didn’t want it to end.

Loved it!

Love, love, loved this funny and educated tale of life in Devon & Norfolk. Tom Cox’s narration is funny & heartwarming, can’t wait to hear more from him. Makes me want to up & walk alone for miles & to get another cat too!
