Many will be familiar with his books on British countryside history, especially woodlands. They dissected the intricate relationships man has had with his environment over the past centuries and gave a vivid insight into the bckground of all those bits of wood we saw, chop and chisel. A sad loss to all lovers of the British countryside.
