The History of the Countryside

 Author: Rackham, Oliver
 Description:

Oliver Rackham

The History of the Countryside

“From its earliest origins to the present, Oliver Rackham describes the endlessly changing character of Britain’s countryside. Exploring the natural and man-made features of the land – fields, highways, hedgerows, fens, marshes, rivers, heaths, coasts, woods and wood-pastures – he shows conclusively and unforgettably how they have developed over the centuries. In doing so, he covers a wealth of related subjects to provide a fascinating account of the sometimes subtle and sometimes radical ways in which people, fauna, flora, climate, soils and other physical conditions have played their part in the shaping of the countryside. Based on extensive research, Oliver Rackham’s classic book is lively and immensely readable.”
