i think i came across this in a catalogue - but found it cheaper through amazon. first i checked it out from the library, then liked it so well, that i bought my own copy so that i could take my time with it; take notes, etc. there are great pictures of the places and lots of information on names of authors and books that go with specific places you can visit in the uk. we took a trip there last year, and really enjoy reading books that take place in some of the places we visited. it's well-written and packed full of interesting stuff. i'm making it sound dry, but it isn't. there is a bit of history, a bit of biography, and a bit of travelogue and it's all written so well, that it is very compelling. i didn't want to put it down.
