"This collection of poems has been selected by the singer and songwriter, Johnny Coppin, to celebrate the 'spirit of place' and evoke the atmosphere and character of the area. (It) is a meandering journey from the source to the sea, featuring spectacular hills and quiet valleys, moorlands and forests, cathedral cities, historic towns and villages. John Betjeman, Mary Webb, A.E. Housman and Ivor Gurney are some of the established poets chosen, but the anthology also has many contemporary writers such as R.S. Thomas, U.A. Fanthorpe, and Helen Dunmore who have found inspiration in the border counties." Includes 'Index of First Lines', 'Index of Poets', and 'Information on Albums and Settings'. Book is fine. Dust jacket has very minor edge wear, small tear archivally taped at top of front flap-fold, small sticker removal mark on front panel. Fine/Very Good.
