9780140272369: Two Degrees West: An English Journey

What is England and who are the English? There is a line from one end of England to the other. This is the line of longitude - 2 degrees west - and it describes a cross-section through the country. The author follows this line as closely as physically possible on foot - terrain ranging from open moorland to urban back-streets. The line begins at Berwick-on-Tweed on the border with Scotland and runs south through the wilds of Northumberland and includes the Yorkshire Dales, Pennines, Birmingham suburbs, Cotswolds, Salisbury Plain, Dorset and Isle of Purbeck.

From AudioFile:

Only one longitudinal meridian runs straight through England from northwestern Scotland to southeastern England, "Two Degrees West." Nicholas Crane is determined to walk every inch of it, not straying from the meridian more than 1000 feet on either side. As he tromps through bogs, highlands, mountains, pastures, and a myriad of towns, the listener learns of the Ordinance Survey that mapped England, a brief history of each area, others who have traveled there or written about it, and, of course, Crane's adventures. Shelley reads all in a matter-of-fact tone, which suits the text perfectly as Crane seems unflappable no matter what obstacle he faces. Shelley's enthusiasm never wanes, nor does Crane's on this two-month journey of adventure. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
