About this book
The paperback edition of Sheers's inspired selection of Britain's best verse, which ties in to the 6 part BBC TV series from last year. The hardback sold 4000 copies. A charming and comprehensive guide to our landscape through poetry.
A poetry anthology. Under the headings of six varieties of British landscape - London and Cities, Villages and Towns, Mountains and Moorland, Islands, Woods and Forest, and Coast and Sea - it collects poems that evoke qualities of the land, city and sea and have become part of the way we see these landscapes.
