Product description

Review

'Ambitious, magnificent . . . Crane is excellent at describing climate, geology and shifting shorelines, but is at his best when plaiting together earth-shaping events with humankind and civilisation' (Andrea Wulf Guardian)

'Pungent, dramatic and drawing deeply on recent research . . . a geographer's love letter to the British and the land that formed them - and which they transformed over many millennia of creative labour. As such, it is dramatic, lyrical and even inspiring, and given all those rocks, remarkably readable' (James McConnachie SUNDAY TIMES)

'This is a magnificent, epic work by a national treasure . . . Nothing escapes his eye . . . and the sweep of history, brought to life in superb prose, is oddly moving. A tour de force' (Bel Mooney DAILY MAIL)

'Crane's book earns its place in the pantheon and it will hopefully inspire a passion for our landscapes in a new generation of readers' (Richard J Mayhew LITERARY REVIEW)

'The book I admired most was Nicholas Crane's The Making of the British Landscape as panoramic as it is revelatory' (Tom Holland OBSERVER Books of the Year)

'The book I want most for Christmas is the satisfyingly hefty The Making of the British Landscape by the ever reliable Nicholas Crane' (Bill Bryson OBSERVER Books of the Year)

'Crane provides a masterful account of how landscapes were settled and shaped' (THE NATIONAL)

'A definitive, encyclopaedic read and an evocative paean to the evolution of our scenery by the vastly knowledgeable BBC presenter, Nick Crane. A revealing glimpse of the Britain that once was and how we made it the place it is today' (BBC COUNTRYFILE)

'Nicholas Crane's sweeping The Making of the British Landscape shows how fragile are the views we love best, and how critical it is to guard them' (Simon Jenkins EVENING STANDARD)

'This is his greatest work for those curious to understand the geographical layers that have shaped Great Britain. From diminishing ice to the peak of our London urban Shard, Crane has captured the chronology of change of our landscapes, full of facts, imagination and archaeology' (Nigel Winser GEOGRAPHICAL)

Book Description

The history of 12,000 years of the British landscape, from the Ice Age to the twenty-first century, by prizewinning author Nicholas Crane, co-presenter of COAST.
