The Illustrated History of the Countryside by Oliver Rackham

First published in this form in 1994, this is a new paperback edition of Oliver Rackham's beautifully presented guide to the British landscape. Rackham enthusiastically illustrates the effects of nature and humans on the countryside since the Ice Age and conveys the individual characters of plants and animals, each of which plays a crucial role in shaping the environment. The book is arranged by habitat, including woodland, pasture, hedges, trackways, moorland, grassland, wetland amongst many more. Each section is richly illustrated with colour photographs, maps and concise definitions of many terms. Itineraries for eight walks across Britain are clearly laid out with maps and photographs of the highlights. Anyone with even the slightest appreciation of the countryside will enjoy this book and gain enormously from it.
