Das Leben auf dem Land – packend und authentisch erzählt James Rebanks’ Familie lebt seit Generationen im englischen Hochland, dem Lake District. Die Lebensweise ist seit Jahrhunderten von den Jahreszeiten und Arbeitsabläufen bestimmt. Im Sommer werden die Schafe auf die kahlen Berge getrieben und das Heu geerntet; im Herbst folgen die Handelsmessen, wo die Herden aufgestockt werden, im Winter der Kampf, dass die Schafe am Leben bleiben, und im Frühjahr schließlich die Erleichterung, wenn die Lämmer geboren und die Tiere wieder in die Berge getrieben werden können. James Rebanks erzählt von einer archaischen Landschaft, von der tiefen Verwurzelung an einen Ort. In eindrucksvoll klarer Prosa schildert er den Jahresablauf in der Arbeit eines Hirten, bietet uns einen einzigartigen Einblick in das ländliche Leben. Er schreibt auch von den Menschen, die ihm nahe stehen, Menschen mit großer Beharrlichkeit, obwohl sich die Welt um sie herum vollständig verändert hat.

Author: Daniel Start
Publisher: Haffmans & Tolkemitt
Dieser sensationelle und vollkommen neuartige Reiseführer führt uns an wilde Seen, Flüsse und Wasserfälle in Frankreich und lässt uns das Land mit ganz neuen Augen sehen. Die Côte d'Azur zu überlaufen, der aufgewühlte Atlantik gut zum Surfen, jedoch weniger gut zum Schwimmen – aber das französische Binnenland bietet spektakuläre Badestellen, von deren Existenz wir gar nichts wussten. Ist das wirklich Frankreich und nicht Costa Rica? Drei Sommer lang bereiste der Traveler, Autor und Verleger Daniel Start mit seiner Frau das Land. Herausgekommen ist ein Brevier magischer Orte, genau solcher Orte, nach denen wir immer suchen, wenn wir auf Reisen sind. Denn in der Natur schwimmen ist eine der seltenen Dinge, die uns ein tiefes Gefühl der Verbundenheit mit der Natur – und mit uns selbst verschaffen.
Lake District (England) by Mountford John Byrde Baddeley
An inspirational guidebook to 50 memorable walks through the high fells of the Lake District. From the favourite summits of Scafell, Bowfell, Great Gable, the Crinkle Crags, to lesser-known fells, this guide offers only the best walks to explore all that is pure Lakeland. Some of the 50 walks described in is this larger format book are well known classic challenges - such as Scafell Pike and Esk Pike, or the Gable Girdle - while others approach a favourite mountain from a new angle or combine several in a testing way. Each one can be crammed into a single, long day or backpacked over two to spend a little longer in this rugged and addictive landscape. The circular walks are all graded, making this guidebook equally suitable for less experienced walkers looking for new summits and undiscovered areas of the Lake District, as well as experienced walkers looking for a challenging day out on the fells. All routes are illustrated with Harvey maps and the author's pictorial route diagrams.
In her study of the opening of the English Lake District to mass tourism, Saeko Yoshikawa examines William Wordsworth’s role in the rise and development of the region as a popular destination. For the middle classes on holiday, guidebooks not only offered practical information, but they also provided a fresh motive and a new model of appreciation by associating writers with places. The nineteenth century saw the invention of Robert Burns’s and Walter Scott’s Borders, Shakespeare’s Stratford, and the Brontë Country as holiday locales for the middle classes. Investigating the international cult of Wordsworthian tourism, Yoshikawa shows both how Wordsworth’s public celebrity was constructed through the tourist industry and how the cultural identity of the Lake District was influenced by the poet’s presence and works. Informed by extensive archival work, her book provides an original case study of the contributions of Romantic writers to the invention of middle-class tourism and the part guidebooks played in promoting the popular reputations of authors.
It is becoming ever clearer that while people tour cultures, cultures and objects themselves are in a constant state of migration. This collection brings together some of the most influential writers in the field to examine the complex connections between tourism and cultural change and the relevance of tourist experience to current theoretical debates on space, time and identity.
