About this book

This book combines the perspectives of natural science, archaeology, social history and historical geography, and draws on 40 years of exploring and studying the moorlands. The author shows how perceptions of the moors have been influenced by writers, artists and the media (and how they have been inspired by the moors), and how these perceptions have resulted in great changes in attitudes to moorland use and management.
