In Limestone Country, the prize-winning poet Fiona Sampson paints a lyrical and very personal portrait of four particular limestone landscapes: a farming hamlet in Perigord, France, the Karst region of Slovenia, Coleshill, a rural parish in Oxfordshire, and Jerusalem, a limestone city which has long shaped people’s beliefs, ways of life and imagination. These stories, vital and human, are told through farming routines, snapshots of daily life and through encounters in streets and fields with wildlife and human history.

Limestone Country is a meditation on how people live in a landscape, how they alter it, and how the landscape shapes them. It is also a love letter to a sedimentary rock, exploring how different communities around the work are bound together by their shared geology.
