This book explores aspects of the Yorkshire Wolds landscape, both physical and historical. It is a celebration of the Yorkshire Wolds through time, from the earliest colonists to modern agriculture and recreation. The papers in it, delivered at a conference held in Warter, make a strong case for official recognition of the area, e.g. as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or a UNESCO Geopark.
