Remnants of a sticker to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs & maps. From the cover: “The wild, dramatic landscapes of Britain’s upland areas have traditionally provided inspiration for artists and writers and a sense of freedom and escape for frustrated city-dwellers. Here, even today, one may walk for hours without seeing more than one or two people, close to the elements and to the tangible evidence of the past.

What is it that gives upland, northern and western Britain its distinctive character, setting it apart so clearly from the lowland south and east? This wide-ranging study — profusely illustrated with informative maps and the authors’ own impressive photographs — analyses the various contributory factors of geology, climate, communications and early cultural links. The history of settlement patterns and land use is investigated in detail from the evidence which remains on the ground, in the field systems of Dartmoor or the hill-forts of North Wales; the authors are especially interested in man’s interaction with his environment, right from the earliest clearances by which our prehistoric ancestors contributed to the growth of the sterile blanket bog on our moors.

This is a strangely ambivalent story, for those very difficulties of terrain and climate which defeated settlers at so many points in history are the same which have preserved the upland country and its history for our enjoyment and instruction today. Now modern technology has solved many of the problems, and we are faced with the choice of bringing new life to the countryside, by the balanced provision of transport and services, or allowing it to be gradually destroyed by unplanned and unchecked commercial ventures.

Whether you are a geographer, a keen walker or simply an occasional visitor, this fascinating book is bound to enhance your appreciation of Britain’s hill country and to leave you concerned for its future.”
