- By: J. A. Baker, Mark Cocker - introduction, Robert Macfarlane - afterword, and others
- Narrated by: Dugald Bruce-Lockhart
- Length: 7 hrs and 34 mins
Despite the association of peregrines with the wild outer reaches of the British Isles, The Peregrine is set on the flat marshes of the Essex coast, where J. A. Baker spent a long winter looking at and writing about the visitors from the uplands - peregrines that spend the winter hunting the huge flocks of pigeons and waders that share the desolate landscape with them. Such luminaries as Ted Hughes and Andrew Motion have cited this as one of the most important books in 20th century nature writing.
A classic ode to wildness
