9780753824306: Great British Journeys

BBC-TV personality Nicholas Crane follows in the footsteps of eight intrepid early explorers who set out to chronicle the state of the British nation. These travelers range from Gerald of Wales, who embarked on a seven-week journey around that country in 1188, to journalist H.V. Morton, who crossed the length and breadth of England by car in the 1920s. Each one—including Celia Fiennes, Daniel Defoe, and William Cobbett—left behind narratives for us to enjoy. Crane shares their passion, imagination, and curiosity.

About the Author:

Nicholas Crane is a rare combination: he's an expert cartographer and an international explorer with a charisma that brings his personal obsession alive. In 1992-3 he walked alone for 18 months along the entire mountain watershed of Europe, describing this epic adventure in his award-winning book Clear Waters Rising. His next book, Two Degrees West, was an account of his walk down Britain's central meridian, and was published to great acclaim in 1999. Nicholas' most recent book was his biography of the world's first modern, scientific cartographer, the Flemish-born, 16th-century genius Gerard Mercator. MERCATOR: THE MAN WHO MAPPED THE PLANET was published in 2002. He has presented 2 series of Mapman for BBC television. Follow Nicholas Crane on Twitter at https://twitter.com/nicholascrane.

Review:

This began as a television series, but the printed version, generously illustrated, is sparkling, and in many ways much more rewarding SUNDAY TELEGRAPH wonderfully written and superbly illustrated with photos, maps, and prints GOOD BOOK GUIDE
