Somehow I was disappointed by this one Certainly enjoyed his other books particularly The Great Arc It is certainly a thoroughly researched history It is however the description of this amazing landscape that really enthralled Interested to read about lifestyles in this era, which is increasingly of interest as I research a book on surveying in the UK in the second half of the 1800s.
