Cover Reveal for THE WOOD THAT BUILT LONDON

Sandstone Press has revealed the cover for C. J. Schuler’s forthcoming book The Wood that Built London: A Human History of the Great North Wood, released on Oct 7, 2021.

Standing in the busy streets of South London today, it is hard to imagine that much of this suburban townscape was once a vast wood, stretching unbroken for almost seven miles from Croydon to the Thames at Deptford. This compelling narrative history charts the fortunes of the North Wood from the earliest times: its ecology, ownership, management, and its gradual encroachment by the expanding metropolis.

The book will include a foreword by Rachel Lichtenstein.
