Yorkshire, it has been said, is “a continent in its own right”, a region where mountains, plains, coasts, downs, fen and heath are close by.Through weaving history, family stories, travel and ecology notebook, Richard Morris reveals how Yorkshire took shape as landscape and literature, legend and popular held Yorkshire.Descend us into hell from the county of caverns and mines and face both brave and dark episodes, such as the role of Whitby and Hull in draining the waters of the Arctic from the whales, or diverting rivers and destroying the Yorkshire peat bogs.We are introduced to discoverers and inventions, meet the people who came and went, meet the real and legendary heroes and discover why, since the iron age of the Cold War, Yorkshire has been such a key place in times of tension and struggle.In a lyrical and wide-ranging narrative, Morris believes that for as far as we can watch Yorkshire has been a region of a unique presence with links around the world.
