Format: Paperback
This is neither a book about the Lake District, nor a book about the writers whose work is dealt with here. It is rather a work which looks at the Lake District through the eyes of writers over a period of about two centuries . As we read it we are seeing through the eyes of others, from the earliest times, around 1700, when people explored the Lake District, to John Ruskin, who lived his last years on the shores of Lake Coniston.

It is a work of both scrupulous scholarship and personal passion, for there is no doubt that NN loved the Lake District, and indeed lived almost all his life in the small town of Millom, on the coastal fringe of the region. In its recent 1995 paperback edition the book is beautifully printed and presented, with colour illustrations from paintings of the region which supplement the work of the writers, to whom NN has given the title name "The Lakers".

The publisher is Cicerone Press, Milnthorpe, Cumbria, Milnthorpe being a small town just outside the boundaries of the Lake District, but within sight of the hills.

This book looks and feels and reads like a labour of love on the part of everyone involved, from the writer onwards.
