Synopsis: The Shropshire Hills are alive with great stories, although too few of them are known to the casual visitor, or even the interested resident. But each year, a few dozen will hear these weird and wonderful tales as they accompany landscape detective Keith Pybus on his walks. Now, for the first time, these stories from the Long Mynd, Wenlock Edge, the Clee Hills, and the Stiperstones have been committed to print. Follow in the footsteps of A.E. Housman, Mary Webb, Bruce Chatwin, and John Osborne. Meet three local Grand Designers, and explore the mansions they built with the fortunes they made. Find out what brought Napoleon’s brother, Lucien Bonaparte, to the Ludlow social scene. Read the hair-raising tale of Molly Morgan, twice sentenced to transportation; the woes of the arsenous maid of Ferney Hall; the stories of the children banished to the New World on the Mayflower; and many, many more. Of course, the explorations are not just into the past. Each year thousands of food fans descend on Shropshire to attend the Ludlow Food Festival, and its markets and restaurants could not exist without the unique and varied produce of local farms, moors, and hedgerows. Then there’s Church Stretton, Shrophsire’s would-be-spa, once promoted as "Switzerland without wolves and avalanches." And Rectory Wood, which was recently voted the least stressful location in England! So join Keith Pybus on an unforgettable adventure through the Shropshire Hills in all their glory. Feel the wind in your hair, just as you feel the history at your back. . .

About the Author: Keith Pybus has appeared on the BBC’s Countryfile and The House Detectives, among others, and has made numerous broadcasts for local radio.
