About the Author

Daniel Butler is a 42 year-old novelist and freelance journalist, specialising in rural and environmental issues. His books include The Red Tail: Sharing the Seasons with a Hawk (Jonathan Cape, 1994) and Urban Dreams, Rural Realities (Simon & Schuster, 1998). He is currently working on a book charting the history of man’s changing attitudes to the environment and contemplating his first novel. His main income, however, comes from articles for titles such as The Telegraph, The Express and Country Living, supplemented by book reviews for The Guardian. As well as frequent interviews on rural issues for radio and television, he is a regular lecturer and interviewer at the Hay Festival. He has taught literary skills to both undergraduates and at adult evening classes and currently provides writing seminars for the Tourism Training Forum for Wales. Daniel lives on a 13-acre smallholding in Mid-Wales where he cultivates weeds and despises sheep when not indulging his passions for falconry and wild mushrooms. He has two children, four hawks, two dogs and a ferret.
