"In this book, Richard Fortey peels away the top layer of Britain to reveal the hidden landscape - the rocks which contain the story of distant events which dictate not only the personality of the landscape but the nature of the soil, the plants that grow in it and the regional characteristics of the buildings. We travel with him as our guide throughout the British Isles and as the rocks change so we learn to read the clues they contain- that Britain was once divided into two parts separated by an ocean, that Scottish malt whiskey, Harris tweed, slate roofs and thatched cottages can be traced back to tumultuous events which took place many millions of years ago."… (més)

It's amazing how dull this man can make the geology of Britain. DNF. ( )

Very interesting as well as readable.

Already have a list of people to lend it to as with all the best books. ( )

It's strange - I wouldn't have said that this was un-put-downable while I was reading it, but now it's gone, I miss it. I liked the way that Fortey approached his topic, with the caveat that someone who isn't familiar with reasonable stretches of the UK would find it less appealing. It's certainly no field guide, in that you are unlikely to be able to identify particular rocks by looking at them as a result of this book, and it veers towards the palaeontological (unsurprisingly given the author's interests). What it is, outstandingly, is a love letter to the rocks of our nation, and a vociferous plea to notice this rich natural heritage which sits under our feet.

A fantastic book that is more than a book about geology, although it has a lot of geology in it.
It is about how the underlying geology affects so much, the housing, the plants, the landscape we see.
A really good and interesting read. Highly recommended. ( )

The blurb in Fortey's 'Life : an unauthorised biography' says his 'The hidden landscape' won the Natural World Book of the Year in 1993. However the BP Natural World Book of the Year that year went to Edward O. Wilson, 'The diversity of life' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_...).
