The distinguished naturalist, Derek Ratcliffe, passed away in 2005 aged 75. Born in 1929, this book tells the tale of his life from boyhood, when his interest in birds, butterflies, moths and dragonflies started to develop, through to the period in his life before 1970. Ratcliffe took the opportunity presented by writing this book of paying tribute to some of the people who helped him along the way and became lifelong friends.
