Estate of Brian Carter
Brian Carter was an artist, poet, columnist, children’s author, naturalist and broadcaster who influenced a generation of nature writers. His six novels all explore man’s relationship with nature, the first of which A Black Fox Running was published in 1981. His art was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London and at galleries in Paris, Germany, Holland and Canada, and he has a one man show on London’s West End. He fought and won many conservation battles for the English countryside and had a great love of the natural world, particularly Dartmoor, within sight of which he lived most of his life.
