Copsford - Walter Murray
"Copsford has an innocence, a freedom in thought... Anyone who has dreamt of spending time alone in the natural environment will connect with Murray’s emotions." Raynor Winn
The classic account of a young man's life in rural Sussex, away from his city life - a year in which he rented a derelict cottage and scratched a living from selling dried herbs and wildflowers.
Bearing comparison to Thoreau's Walden, Murray's intense feeling for his place is evident on every page. For all that it is no simple story of a rural idyll - life at Copsford was difficult and Murray does not shy away from the occasional terrors of a house that had its hauntings.

About Little Toller Books
Toller n river valley in West Dorset. Recorded in the Domesday
survey as Tolre, derived from a Celtic word for stream in a hollow valley.
Little Toller Books was born in 2008 as an imprint of the Dovecote Press, a family-run publishing company that has specialised in books about rural life and local history since 1974. Little Toller was started with a singular purpose: to revive forgotten and classic books about nature and rural life in the British Isles.
The success of Little Toller’s Nature Classics has enabled it to grow into an independent publisher, attuned to writers and artists who seek inventive ways to reconnect us with the natural world and to celebrate the places we live in.
