This Land Hardback
by Roly Smith
Joe Cornish is widely acknowledged as Britain's finest landscape photographer.
In this new collection he explores fifty of the most amazing landscapes in Britain.
Taking its cue from these Isles' extraordinarily diverse geology, This Land ranges from the ancient quartzite rocks of the Scottish Highlands to the gritstones and limestones of the English Pennines and the rolling chalk downs of Southern England.
There are sections on Mountains, Islands, Forests and Coasts, and the book concludes with a fascinating look at the ways in which British people have shaped the landscape over thousands of years.
Accompanying text by leading outdoors writer and campaigner Roly Smith explains how each type of rock creates its own distinctive landforms and vegetation, and how these have often been made the subject of local folklore and legend.
There is room for some personal recollections from Joe and Roly about their own experiences in these magical places.
