Remote Britain: Landscape, People and Books
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.
