This book of vivid contemporary photography celebrates many of the cultural and traditional aspects of life in the Forest of Dean that make it such a distinctive area.

Included are the freeminers, the commoners and their sheep, artists and artisans and the landscape itself, together with the remains of the industrial history that shaped it.

'A superb introduction to the wonderful Forest of Dean and all that makes it special'
Baroness Jan Royall, from her introduction
