Nomad books by Norman Ellison (Nomad of the BBC)

NomadWandering Wandering with Nomad

Norman Ellison is known by countless listeners to the BBC Northern Children's Hour in the 1940's as 'Norman the Naturalist' and his fortnightly walk into the countryside with his schoolboy nephew Dick, became one of the highlights of that broadcasting era.

In this story Dick is spending his holidays at Nomad's home - an old smugglers cottage on the cliff top and what a holiday it proved to be! Whether they were going down an old quarry face on a rope, warding off an attack of a wild cat or hunting for pearls amongst the mussel beds, Nomad holds his reader's attention by the same charm and fascination he displays when he did his broadcasts.

Whether you can remember his radio shows or not, this book is equally charming and informative. An echo of a bygone age.

Fully illustrated by the eminent black and white artist C. F. Tunnicliffe.

The story is written with the imitable charm of manner and personality which is so much a part of Nomad's books.

With numerous illustrations by C. F. Tunnicliffe, the eminent nature artist.
