This book about England's last great wilderness, as it is often called, is a systematic topographical and historical survey of Dartmoor by watersheds, and the first to deal comprehensively with the region since the celebrated guide of 1908 by William Crossing. Every river country has its map showing courses and names of even the smallest tributary streams. Helpful features are the glossary of terms, in which an explanation is given of every type of feature described in the text, and the illustrated note on the physical pattern of the valleys, which makes clear that, far from being an expanse of moorland conceived in a haphazard fit by nature, Dartmoor is possessed of a physical symmetry. Never before has the Moor been meticulously recorded in word and picture.
