The Backbone of England: Landscape and life on the Pennine watershed (Frances Lincoln). Hardback published March 2008; revised paperback edition Spring 2011. Kindle edition published Autumn 2016, £3.50.
"In this wonderful book Andrew Bibby... not only helps us to savour the Pennine landscape; he helps us to understand it, and he urges us to cherish it. He shows us how this land was formed, what has happened and is happening to it, and – in a thoroughly un-preachy kind of way – why it matters. This is a book of enjoyment and of revelation." - Chris Smith (Rt Hon Lord Smith of Finsbury)
