In this remarkable new book, the author shares his extensive knowledge and undoubted enthusiasm for Dartmoor with his readers. Even those who feel they know the moor well will find, here, much that is new to them, and will treasure the book as a companion and source of reference to increase their pleasure and sense of exploration each time they visit Dartmoor. This book is not presented as a dry lesson in history, but rather takes the form of an enjoyable walk with a friend who points out features of interest along the way, draws your attention to things you would otherwise miss, and who relates stories from Dartmoor people he has met who in turn have an interesting story to tell. The author's enthusiasm and knowledge of the moor shines out from every page, leaving the reader entranced and bursting to get out and explore the wide open spaces of Dartmoor for themselves.
William Lethbridge has travelled around the world, but no matter how far and wide his travels have taken him, Dartmoor calls no sooner he arrives home. The author has explored Dartmoor for over thirty-five years, never walking in a straight line but meandering here and there with eyes peeled for whatever there is to see.
