In the Nature of Landscape presents regional cultural landscape as a new direction for research in cultural geography.
A startlingly original work, conjuring a deep map and vivid portrait of the Norfolk Broads, and suggesting wholly new approaches to the study and writing of regional geography. This is an important contribution to the field that in its range of themes, broad and inclusive perspectives, and the rigour of its critical attention will surely be emulated elsewhere.

In this book, one of the best writers in geography today offers us an original and exciting understanding of landscape as a colloquium of voices and accents. We hear the Norfolk Broads in the official and the vernacular, the technical and the theatrical, the sober and the eccentric. As we read, the author himself is revealed as a key element of the landscape not a histrionic presence, but a circumspect vantage?point and a virtuoso ear.
