The Pageant of Summer

Have you ever spent an evening in the English countryside and marveled at the beauty around you? In ‘The Pageant of Summer’, Victorian British author Richard Jefferies takes you on a poetic journey that examines all of the warmth and wonder of a bright summer’s evening. You will feel as if you are along for the ride as he describes the luscious green grass below and the light buzz of a dragonflies wings above your head. A type of nature meditation awaits as you dive into the world of Jeffries’ vivid imagery and imagination. Lovers of nature documentaries such as Sir David Attenborough’s 'Planet Earth' will enjoy this short relaxing read.

Victorian English author Richard Jefferies is well known as a nature writer focusing on the British countryside. His works also include two well received books, one, a children’s book ‘Bevis’ (1882) as well as a sci-fi book 'After London’ (1885) among other works. Jefferies is regarded as a brilliant imagery creator, showing the world all of the wonder happening right in front of us that we have been too busy to stop and see.
