Wonderful book, beautifully written. It describes all landscapes as a fluid entity relating to it's history both natural and man made. Each section is relatively short which gives it pace and related to examples that the author has experienced personally. Anne Whiston Spirin conveys her life learning in such a way that what she says seems obvious once you have read it, which makes it easy to take on what she is saying. Well worth a read.
