Richard Mabey, described as "Britain's greatest living nature writer", explores the nightingale's links with Suffolk culture and landscape, and traces the bird's course through myth, lore and tradition. He plumbs his subject for its fascinating literary and historical references, and opens the reader's ears to the bird itself and its extraordinary song, a hymn to survival. New images by Derrick Greaves accompany the text.
