  • Description
  • Related

R.D. Blackmore’s deep affection for, and understanding of, Exmoor’s landscape, people and legends shines through his immortal novel Lorna Doone.

Through words and pictures this book, The Lorna Doone Trail, traces the Exmoor adventures of Jan Ridd and Lorna Doone and the host of other characters such as Jeremy Stickles and Tom Faggus who feature in the grand sweep of the story.

Using Blackmore’s own words as the starting point, The Lorna Doone Trail helps to marry plot with place, using generous illustrations and expert commentary to put the narrative in its real-life context. It enables lovers of the novel and its abounding life to follow confidently in Blackmore’s footsteps and revisit the key locations of the timeless Exmoor story of derring-do, and love enduring against the odds.

S.H. Burton (1919–2005), writer, teacher, and publisher, was head of the English Department at Blundell’s School between 1945 and 1964. He wrote many books on a wide range of subjects, his most successful being Exmoor (4th edition, 1984).

John Burgess, born in Somerset, was a BBC radio journalist and producer for almost twenty-five years, but his life-long love of Exmoor and its people first took root when he joined the Exmoor National Park Authority in the late 1970s. He produced with Caroline Tonson-Rye Hope Bourne’s Exmoor: Eloquence in Art (Halsgrove, 2013).

Caroline Tonson-Rye retired to Exmoor in 2010 after a career in publishing. She is a Trustee of the Exmoor Society, and editor of Exmoor Chroniclers (Exmoor Society, 2017).

Imprint: PiXZ. ISBN 978 0 85710 121 1, hardback, 210x148mm, 112 pages. Published October 2018.
