Synopsis: This tiny charity founded by Octavia Hill, Robert Hunter and Hardwicke Rawnsley in 1895 is now the most widely respected conservation body in Europe, protecting over 600,000 acres of countryside in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, 545 miles of unspoiled coastline, 230 historic houses and 130 important gardens.

From Library Journal: Originally published in 1995 (LJ 11/1/95), this book contains an apt quote from Beatrix Potter, who herself was involved with Great Britain's National Trust: "The Trust is a noble thing, and humanly speaking?immortal. There are some silly mortals connected with it; but they will pass." Waterson, who has worked for the National Trust for over 25 years, has written the story of those "silly mortals," from those who founded the trust in 1895 to those running it today. Many interesting and strong-willed personalities abound here, but there is also insight into British society throughout the century. One recurring theme is that the National Trust was designed not only to preserve land and houses but also to educate and provide recreation for the public. Attempts to balance these two conflicting ideals make the story even more fascinating. Well researched and richly illustrated, this book would appeal to those interested in British history, architecture, or historic preservation.?Kathleen A. Shanahan, American Lib., Washington, D.C.
