about

Shortlisted for the 2015 Wainwright Prize

In this journey across England''s most forbidding and mysterious terrain, William Atkins takes the reader from south to north, exploring moorland''s uniquely captivating position in our history, literature and psyche. Atkins'' journey is full of encounters, busy with the voices of the moors, past and present. He shows us that, while the fierce terrains we associate withWuthering Heights andThe Hound of the Baskervilles are very human landscapes, the moors remain daunting and defiant, standing steadfast against the passage of time.

William Atkins grew up in Hampshire. After studying art history, he went on to work in publishing, where he edited prize-winning fiction. He now works as a freelance editor, and studies and writes about Britain''s marginal landscapes. He lives in north London.
