More than any other writer Gilbert White (1720-93) has shaped the relationship between man and nature. A hundred years before Darwin White realised the crucial role of worms in the formation of soil and understood the significance of territory and song in birds. His precise scrupulously honest and unaffectedly witty observations led him to interpret animals' behaviour in a unique manner. This collection of his letters to the explorer and naturalist Daines Barrington and the eminent zoologist Thomas Pennant - White's intellectual lifelines from his country-village home - are a beautifully written detailed evocation of the lives of the flora and fauna of eighteenth-century England.

This is a Jeeves and Wooster novel. At Deverill Hall an idyllic Tudor manor in the picture-perfect village of King's Deverill impostors are in the air. The prime example is man-about-town Bertie Wooster doing a good turn to Gussie Fink-Nottle by impersonating him while he enjoys fourteen days away from society after being caught taking an unscheduled dip in the fountains of Trafalgar Square. Bertie is of course one of nature's gentlemen but the stakes are high: if all is revealed there's a danger that Gussie's simpering fiancee Madeline may turn her wide eyes on Bertie instead. It's a brilliant plan - until Gussie himself turns up imitating Bertram Wooster. After that only the massive brain of Jeeves (himself in disguise) can set things right.
