about this item
With contributions from leading thinkers, campaigners and high profile supporters including Bill Bryson, Phillip Pullman, Benjamin Zephaniah, Jeanette Winterson, Michael Morpurgo, Andrew Motion and Simon Jenkins, the book will be generously illustrated with archive images and beautiful colour photography of present day landscapes. Readers will see what has been saved, what has been protected for ever, and, on occasion, what has been lost (often the most poignant image of all). As well as a main narrative on the ideas themselves, each chapter will contain short sections on the original thinkers, the advocates and campaigners, the battles and the achievements.
