Summary

A captivating nature memoir telling the story of Britain's Green Belt, our national obsession with the countryside and the author's childhood.
Outskirts will explore the origins of Britain's Green Belt. It will chart the genesis of the idea, which grew from romantic 19th-century notions of the countryside and our past, the pioneers behind organisations such as the National Trust, and the Green Belt's place in the landscape and psyche of postwar Britain. Integrated throughout will be the story of what it was like to grow up on the edge of it, with each chapter combining Grindrod's family's story with a wider historical narrative.
