This bewitching little book.’ The Spectator

‘Fine portraits of both place and people.’ The Telegraph

Limestone Country is a perceptive, lyrical evocation and investigation into four landscapes across Europe and beyond. Seemingly disparate they are bound together by geology, personal experience and Fiona Sampson’s unique imagination. Limestone Country delves into the heart of these places and their vital human stories, told through snapshots of daily life, farming routines and encounters with the wild. It is a meditation on the meaning of place, how we shape it and how it shapes us.

This is the paperback of the acclaimed monograph.
