One of forty-five essays covering such things as castles, notable roads, and the varied regions of Britain. Enhanced by eleven photographs, Bates's account begins with the definition of a forest and the question as to whether any have survived in England; he moves on through the beasts of the forest, hunting traditions, forests as captured in English literature, and the possibility of a land reforested in the future. In Romantic Britain (Ed. Tom Stephenson, London: Odhams Press, 1937, pp. 227-36).
