Nicholas Gordon's passion and concern for the countryside underlie the powerful imagery of his writing.

Background Information

Nicholas Gordon was born in the early 1960s and grew up on a Cheshire dairy farm. In his early childhood he experienced first hand the drama of the foot and mouth disease epidemic that laid siege to the county. As he got older he witnessed probably the greatest decline in British agriculture since the depression of the 1930s. It was in these early years that Gordon's interest in field sports began.
After his years in school Gordon went on to higher education; graduating from the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth in 1984. He had a short but varied career in agriculture and experienced everything from the high pressure world of commercially based research into the nutrition of pigs, to the more sedate and nostalgic environment of a 1930's working farm museum at a Cheshire stately home. Towards the end of the 1980s Gordon made a complete career change but was not able to turn his back entirely on his former occupation, continuing to keep horses, sheep and poultry for his own interest. Nicholas Gordon currently lives on the Cheshire/Shropshire border with his wife, two teenage daughters and a host of canines; which include his Labrador retrievers and a rescued Jack Russell Terrier. His interest in country sports remains undiminished.
