Darby’s clarity of prose – something he worked tirelessly to achieve – is her plainly apparent. The chapters are beautifully written and engaging even now.
History, Vol. 88, Issue 1
Given Darby’s very considerable influence, this book is to be warmly welcomed as a contribution to the history of historical geography.
Landscape History, Vol. 24
... these essays are a piece of geography’s past and are thus, like Darby’s reconstructions of landscapes, valuable in themselves.
The Local Historian, Vol. 32, No. 4,
“Darby was an intellectual collossus of the mid-twentieth century, a man of great influence on the nature and content of geography as practised.” (, , )
