Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Afoot in England, first published in 1909, recounts the author's wanderings from village to village across the south of England, from Surrey to Devon and Cornwall, and along the East Anglian coast.His work speaks powerfully of the simple pleasures of the English countryside.Despite many years living in poverty in London, when his country rambles were an escape from a life that then held few other pleasures, Hudson eventually achieved fame with his books about the English countryside, which in turn helped to foster the back-to-nature movement of the 1920s and 1930s.This edition is introduced by Robert Macfarlane, Fellow of Emmanuel College Cambridge, and a contemporary explorer of Britain's wild places. He is the author of Mountains of the Mind and The Wild Places.
