– A salute to all things that make the English countryside so very special –

“This collectioon of pieces celebrating rural England does not only focus on the rolling hillsides and spectacular landscapes that set England apart from the rest of the world. Many of the contributors bring their own specal touch, with personal anecdotes and refreshingly original choices of icons representing what the English countryside really mens to them.

First published as a lavishly illustrated hardback, this new paperback edition has double the number of new contributions from many well-known figures. The sale of every copy will support the campaigning work of CPRE, the organization which is dedicated to a beautiful and living countryside.”

CPRE = Campaign to Protect Rural England.
