Description - The Country Diaries by Alan Taylor

The unique beauty of the British countryside has been celebrated down the ages in music, poetry and art. It has also been celebrated in countless private diaries. In this fine treasury the thoughts of Dorothy Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Fowles rub shoulders with the words of Queen Victoria, Siegfried Sassoon and Roger Deakin.

Together, these private records, which have been arranged as a diary of the calendar year, paint a rich and surprising portrait of the British landscape and way of ife.
