Item description for Countryside by Joe Cornish...
Over a hundred years ago, the National Trust was founded to preserve places of historic interest or natural beauty in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Today it protects more than 600,000 acres of land. The variety is unparalleled---from the fells and lakes of Cumbria to the wilderness wetlands of Wicken Fen in East Anglia. This collection of photographs reveals not only the natural beauty, but how the human hand has shaped the landscape over the centuries.

Reviews - What do customers think about Countryside?
Very good book of photos Sep 13, 2007
I had heard that this book was not highly recommended, but what the heck, it was $14.00 and free shipping from this site.
The cover photo, also displayed inside, is beautiful, as are all the other photos in the book. Some are not my cup of tea, but a lot of them are, and Joe Cornish has proven his mastery of light and the landscape photograph.
I found the book somewhat instructional because the images gave me ideas for my own work, and the text isn't preachy or anything. All in all, a very good buy!
