Product description

From the Back Cover

ENGLISH JOURNEYS
Number 14

In these evocative and elegiac writings L. T. C. Rolt meditates on landscape, history, poetry, steam railways, vintage cars and the endless summer days of his childhood. He also recalls his many happy boating voyages on Britain's canals: the peace and tranquillity, the wildlife and people, the changing scenery as he travelled from county to county, and the role he played in preserving the waterways for future generations.

L. T. C. Rolt (1910-1974) was the noted biographer of major civil engineering figures such as Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Thomas Telford. Co-founder of the Inland Waterways Association, he was one of the pioneers of the leisure cruising industry on Britain's canals, as well as a classic car and heritage railway enthusiast.

Synopsis

This title is a beautiful evocation of the peaceful life on the English waterways. Generations of inhabitants have helped shape the English countryside - but it has profoundly shaped us too. It has provoked a huge variety of responses from artists, writers, musicians and people who live and work on the land - as well as those who are travelling through it. English Journeys celebrates this long tradition with a series of twenty books on all aspects of the countryside, from stargazey pie and country churches, to man's relationship with nature and songs celebrating the patterns of the countryside (as well as ghosts and love-struck soldiers). --This text refers to the mass_market edition.
