HILDA MURRELL'S NATURE DIARIES 1961-1983

Author(s): SINKER CHARLES

Garden Writing | Don McMillan

Hilda Murrell was murdered in March 1984, her killers have never been found. She was a gentle and dedicated lady, who was best known for growing Roses, some say she was murdered because of her approval to present to the sizewell inquiry, as an independent objector, a damning critique of the Governments White Paper on radioactive waste management. During her life Hilda kept separate journals, Diaries on Botanical and other natural history subjects, and planting logs. This book contains the greater part of the Natural History diaries for the period 1961 - 83, covering her holiday trips to Anglesey, Mallorca, Southwest ireland and the Highlands of Scotland, and excursions from her Shrewsbury home to places as far away as Bath or Borth, or as near as Haughmond Hill. These visits were usually an escape from her work, interludes of freedom about which she felt deeply.

Good copy with excellent dj. Owners name on fep.
