This is a thoughtful publication which takes an interesting thematic approach to the cultural history of the Cotswolds. This makes for a lighter and much more engaging read. Recommended for anyone with an interest in the area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly interesting for a guidebook 28 Aug. 2013
By sgt lamb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This guidebook was recommended for a hiking tour in the Cotswalds with Road Scholar. I did not expect to find it more than mildly helpful, nor did I expect to read the whole thing. But the more I read, the more I wanted to read it, and finished it cover to cover. It's full of historical information about not only the Cotswolds but England. It also led me to other useful writings,including and especially "Lifting the Latch" by Sheila Stewart. If you want a very good read about English rural commoners in the 19th century, their trials and fortitude, this is it. This is a great guidebook, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun guide 25 Jun. 2013
By Deborah J. Harper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this to prepare for hiking the Cotswolds Way. It was very informative and there are sections easy to skip and others easy to go to. I found I knew as much as many of the museum volunteers I ran into!
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Travel Background 23 Feb. 2015

I have the edition before the one pictured but was a great background to my recent visit to the Cotswolds.
