Description
With its towering peaks and wide-open spaces, Great Britain's Lake District is one of the nation's favorite getaways, but this was not always the case, as the author of The Sun King's Garden points out in this history. Featuring more than 80 color photographs and period illustrations, Ian Thompson's book follows such wary early travelers to the region as Daniel Defoe and diarist Celia Fiennes, and chronicles how William Wordsworth, John Ruskin, J.M.W. Turner, Alfred Wainwright, and Beatrix Potter later documented and popularized the region. Thompson also discusses the 1951 creation of the district as a national park, and the threats posed to it by tourism and agricultural projects.
