Product description

Review

A fascinating portrait of country life across the centuries told by the nation's greatest diarists . . . dip into it each day to see how endlessly gripping and entertaining everyday life can be. --Country Life

The arch-editor appears to have scoured the hedgerows, rolled over boulders and scaled Britain's mountains in his search. For he has unearthed a diverse range of authors - from literary greats such as Hardy and Scott; to playwrights and poets, such as Bennett and Sassoon to more contemporary sources, like Roger Deakin and Derwent May. --Scottish Field
