This book tells you about the features of the countryside from moorlands to mountains to specific features such as drystone walls and viaducts. It shows the types of home you can find in the countryside, the people who live and work there and the plants and animals you can find. It looks at transport in the countryside and signs of the past. A map at the end of the book encourages map skills.

Questions throughout ask the reader to find out more about what makes a village and encourages comparison between the place where they live and other types of location. Specially commissioned photographs show a wide range of types of village from across the UK.

Here's what you say about us...

Ruth Thomson is an award-winning educational author (with an MA in Museum and Gallery learning) , who specialises in writing books on art and history. Her art books include Grisly & Gruesome, Saints and Looking at Paintings for the National Gallery, London, a short biography of Georgia O'Keeffe and several hands-on art packs for Tate galleries. She has also co-written Posters and Propaganda in Wartime, published in conjunction with the Imperial War Museum. Her history books include a series about Victorian childhood and books about Plains Indians and Aztecs. Ruth's interest in Terezn was sparked during research for an educational pack on Holocaust art for the London Gallery of Jewish Art. The gallery owns a powerful series of prints by Leo Haas, one of the artists featured in the book, and Ruth became intrigued to find out more about the place that had inspired them. As well as writing educational books, Ruth travels widely, collecting recycled artefacts, which she has shown in bespoke exhibitions at major British museums and galleries for the past 7 years. In her spare time, Ruth enjoys long-distance walking, stone carving and reading modern American literature.
