Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley is rightly remembered as one of the three founders of the National Trust but this was only a small part of his life’s work. He was a prolific writer and became a spokesman for everything the Lake District represented, working tirelessly to preserve the region’s unique and special landscape, culture, way of life, history, language and buildings. This comprehensive and thoroughly researched biography from Michael Allen and Rosalind Rawnsley explores his life and work in full and is an important addition to the canon of Lake District literature.
