Product description

This book on Cumberland and Westmorland shows clearly the human struggle, by successive generations, to overcome a hard, if beautiful, environment and hostile neighbours. Since peace prevailed the region has enjoyed both an agricultural and industrial revolution, before tourism took over from trade and nuclear power from coal. "Compact enough for the general reader and scholarly enough for the student ..." Keswick Reminder
