The forest primeval, the river of life, the sacred mount -- read Landscape and Memory to have these explained... 'One of the most intelligent, original, stimulating, self-indulgent, perverse and irresistibly enjoyable books I have ever read.

The forest primeval, the river of life, the sacred mount -- and the end of the wonderful book we understand where these ideas have come from, why they are so compelling and how they still lie all around us.
