"It is the ideal approach to any consideration of the British countryside which seeks to bring past, present and future into harmony [...] This is a big book and a demanding one but it is not a difficult one. Nobody who reads it can fail to look at our countryside with a new and enriched vision."
- Desmond Hawkins, New Scientist
