The Last Shepherds: A Vanishing Way of Life on Britain’s Traditional Hill Farms by Charles Bowden
London: Granada Media, 2004
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Green boards with Gilt titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: Once, the UKs farmers employed thousands of shepherds, but a slump in sheep farming has cut a swathe through their ranks; nowadays shepherds are virtually a thing of the past, and most flocks are herded by farmers on quad bikes.

The Last Shepherds follows hill shepherds Dave Baxter and Stewart and Gwen Wallace through the cycle of hill farming in the Cheviot Hills of Northumberland lambing in spring, haymaking, shearing in the summer, then autumn lamb sales and winter feeding. This engrossing book is an extraordinary record of a vanishing way of life on Britains traditional hill farms.

Great British Journeys by Crane
London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2007
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Matching Pictorial boards with titling to
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: Who discovered Britain? We are familiar with the image of adventurers setting out to discover distant lands, but who explored our own islands? In Great British Journeys, Nicholas Crane follows in the footsteps of eight early travellers as they cross the length and breadth of Britain, revealing the country as it has never been seen before.

From Gerald of Wales twelfth-century recruitment drive for the Crusades, to H. V. Mortons adventures of 1927 in his bull-nosed Morris, each of the eight had their own mission and faced their own challenges. John Leland, Henry VIIIs famous chronicler, was sent mad by his attempt to record the landscape in writing; Celia Fiennes rode out in 1698 aiming to be the first person to visit all the counties of England, when Britain was in the grips of a Little Ice Age. Pennant explored the wilds of Scotland on foot and by boat, caught in a vicious storm in Loch Maree, while Gilpin viewed England from the relative safety of the River Wye.

All left narratives behind for others Daniel Defoes A Tour Thro the Whole Island of Great Britain (1724-1726) provides a detailed account of trade on the eve of the Industrial Revolution, while Cobbetts Rural Rides gives first-hand evidence on the plight of the poor of the countryside.

Their passion is evident in these tales, and so provides the inspiration behind Nicholas Cranes latest adventure as he traces their routes across Britain, discovering wetlands and mountain ranges, beaches and cliffs and marvelling at how much has changed between their landscapes and ours, and vet how much remains the same.

Surviving with Wolves: The Most Extraordinary Story of World War II by Misha Defonseca with the collaboration of Vera Lee & Marie-The´re´se Cuny
London: Portrait, 2005
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Red boards with Gilt titling to Spine
Translated by: Sue Rose
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps to the endpapers and blanks; Chapter Headpieces;

From the cover: One of the most extraordinary and poignant survival stories to come out of World War II Misha was only six years old when her parents were taken away from their home in Belgium to Auschwitz. She was given a new name, a new home, and forced into a new religion. No one told her why her parents were no longer with her, only that they had gone East.

So one day, equipped only with a tiny compass and a few provisions, she set out East to find them. Misha crossed Belgium, Germany and Poland on foot alone until, close to starvation in a vast forest, she was adopted by a family of wolves. She ate and played with the wolf cubs, and was protected by their mother.

Finally, at the end of the war, she found her way home to Belgium via the Ukraine, Romania and Italy. She never found her parents.
