| book description |

The forest primeval, the river of life, the sacred mount - read `Landscape and Memory' to have these explained... `Landscape and Memory' is a history book unlike any other. In a series of journeys through space and time, it examines our relationship with the landscape around us - rivers, mountains, forests - the impact each of them has had on our culture and imaginations, and the way in which we, in turn, have shaped them to answer our needs. This is not a conventional history book, but a book that builds up its argument by a series of poetic stories and impressions which cumulatively have the effect of a great novel. The forest primeval, the river of life, the sacred mount - at the end of this wonderful book we understand where these ideas have come from, why they are so compelling and how they still lie all around us.
