Descripción

Remote Britain relishes the ever-changing great landscapes of our island and the people who grow out of them. And the constant surprises. Who realises how sharp are the contrasts to be found within the Isles of Scilly or the Isle of Wight, how remote it is possible to feel in Essex, or how extraordinary is 'Yorkshire's teardrop', Spurn Point, way out in the Humber estuary? As in his acclaimed Journey Through Britain to which this is a worthy successor, Mr Thomas finds remains of railways and even active steam trains in the most unlikely of places, stays in hotels to fall in love with or to hate, and is never short of people to express their own views, as he does colourfully himself in chapters such as In the Footsteps of the Queen Mother. Here is a book to dip into, savour and refer to many times. About the Author David St John Thomas is the author of many books, including a bestselling series chronicling the four big railway companies. He is the founder of the publishing house David & Charles, which he ran for 30 years. Heavy - extra postage may apply. N° de ref. de la librería 550975

Sinopsis:

Remote Britain relishes the ever-changing landscapes of Britain and the people who grow out of them plus the constant surprises. As in his acclaimed Journey Through Britain, David St John Thomas finds remains of railways and even active steam trains in the most unlikely of places, stays in hotels to fall in love with or to hate, and is never short of people who express their own views, as he does colorfully himself in chapters such as "In the Footsteps of the Queen Mother." This thinking traveler's tour of some of Britain's most out-of-the-way places throws up many common themes: small but contented populations, the sea as the historic highway. Remote Britain brings readers to corners of the nation that they’ve never seen before.

About the Author:

Descripción de la librería

A small neighbourhood second-hand book shop for people who want to read books. Besides the books in the shop, our claim to fame is having a catalogued inventory offsite of more than 50,000 books that can be brought in or posted the next day. We are not a rare-and-collectable bookshop, instead having a bit of this, and a bit of that. While everything's catalogued, it's more fun to browse the shelves. So come in and say g'day.
