"The unique beauty of the British countryside has been celebrated down the ages through music, poetry, and art. It has also been celebrated in countless private diaries. This delightful treasury gathers together the very finest - from Rev Gilbert White's journal of life at his famous home in Selborne, to Beatrix Potter's holiday diaries from Perthshire. Elsewhere, the thoughts of Dorothy Wordsworth and John Fowles rub shoulders with the words of Alan Clark and Queen Victoria. Together these private records paint a rich and surprising picture of a landscape and a way of life we think we know so well."--Publisher's description

Colonial America : a very short introduction by Alan Taylor( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
"Over the last generation, historians have broadened our understanding of colonial America by examining the interplay of Europe, Africa, and the Americans through the flow of goods, people, plants, animals, capital, and ideas. Alan Taylor presents an engaging overview of this new scholarship, showingthat American colonization derived from a global expansion of European exploration and commerce that began in the fifteenth century. The English had toshare the stage with French, Spanish, Dutch, and Russians, each of whom created alternative Americas. Taylor also focuses on slavery as central to the economy, culture, and political thought of the colonists and on the importance of native peoples to the colonial story. This book describes an intermingling of cultures and of microbes, plants, and animals from different continents that was unparalleled in global history."--BOOK JACKET
