Nicely timed book from a Special Interests publisher as the Johnson Government prepares to continue sluicing billions down the HS2 drain. The Great Central main line is a classic of the dither and delay of British public transport planning in the second half of the Twentieth Century. – Very Highly Recommended.
Humans have formed a long, close and unique association with horses amongst the numbers of animals successfully domesticated.. This book contains so many superb images that capture the beauty, power and grace of horses, their strength and purpose. – Most Highly Recommended.
