Anne-Marie Edwards is the author of numerous travel guides exploring the English countryside. She has written and broadcasted programs on both Jane Austen and traveling in England for BBC radio and television. I purchased the book in preparation of a walking tour "In the Footsteps of Jane Austen", which I am planning for September 2014. On first reading, it seemed quite satisfactory, apart from the maps, which are sketchy and far from clear. I particularly liked the close association between Jane Austen's life and work and the details of each walk.

Walk in Jane Austen's footsteps and capture the atmosphere of her world. It introduces us to the real-life people she met on her journeys, many of whom live on as characters in her books.

This survey of the places where Jane Austen lived and visited and worked is by far the best of the various ones similar.

This book introduces the people she met on her journeys and explores the country houses, churches, great estates, and elegant cities she knew, which have changed surprisingly little in the course of two centuries. This survey of the places where Jane Austen lived and visited and worked is by far the best of the various ones similar.

Jane Austen - about as a good commercial entity as the Royal Family it seems in bringing tourists into Brtain? .

Jane Austen - about as a good commercial entity as the Royal Family it seems in bringing tourists into Brtain? Reply. About £10. Less than many Americans will feel morally obliged to tip a tour driver every day. The only small problem: in a county with as many lovely paths as Hampshire, Ms Austen seems to have gone out of her way to have chosen the dullest stretches of countryside to be associated with. So one addition I bet's not in the tour. Go up to the Cotswolds.

Jane Austen's England - the first book of its kind - takes the reader on a series of walking tours into the very heart of her world

Jane Austen's England - the first book of its kind - takes the reader on a series of walking tours into the very heart of her world. These fifteen picturesque walks describe the country houses, churches, great estates and elegant cities that were the settings for her novels and introduce the reader to the real-life people she met, many of whom became characters in her books. An indispensable guide for all Austen fans, some of the sights include Godmersham House, the inspiration for Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice, the view from Box Hill, scene of the 'exploring party' in Emma,.

Despite only six completed books to her name, Jane Austen nonetheless remains a lasting presence in the world of English literature. Jane Austen completed only six official works during her lifetime. The listing below covers Jane Austen's six completed novels (of note is that two of them were actually published after her death), her two unfinished novels and her "Juvenilia" stories. Despite her short time behind the writing desk, Jane Austen remains one of the most well-known and admired writers in literary history. Jane Austen's Official Works (1811-1817)

This detailed and engaging account of Austen's life and work is arranged as a series of walking tours through the towns and countryside she knew and loved—the settings for her novels. This book introduces the people she met on her journeys and explores the country houses, churches, great estates, and elegant cities she knew, which have changed surprisingly little in the course of two centuries.

Overall this is a good starting point reference for walks/hikes through Jane Austen inspired areas. It felt like the authors went into great detail in the beginning, but later walks it feels like they were running out of energy. Description got shorter and more vague. The parking references are out of date and in some cases do not offer you the least expensive option (particularly in the various city walks). The maps were terrible, we had to create our own maps from the descriptions which took LOTS of time before the directions provided made any sense. If you have the time to "recreate" maps and re-read the walks over and over it will be a good reference.

I purchased the book in preparation of a walking tour "In the Footsteps of Jane Austen", which I am planning for September 2014.
On first reading, it seemed quite satisfactory, apart from the maps, which are sketchy and far from clear.
I particularly liked the close association between Jane Austen's life and work and the details of each walk.
However, further preparations, and drawing information from the internet and other books, revealed several inadequacies.
For example: 1, Being written in 1991, even the 2006 Third Printing which I bought, could not possibly have contained the important news of the 2011 and 2012 of "Remains of Jane Austen's Steventon home (having been) unearthed" (BBC News).
2. On the area map on Page 42, Oakley Hall still appears as "Hilsea College", even though it was restored in 2003 to its original glory and has been used as a luxury hotel ever since.
3. The treatment of Lyme Regis is quite insufficient. It touches only upon its connections with Jane Austen, but fails to mention that "The town is noted for the fossils found in the cliffs and beaches, which are part of the Heritage Coast—known commercially as the Jurassic Coast—a World Heritage Site." (Wikipedia)
These were but three examples of those I have noticed. I imagine the actual visit in September will reveal further inadequacies.
However, all said and done, Anne-Marie Edwards' book is still the best single book of its kind, and an up-to-date revision of facts and maps would make it a truly 5 Star book.

For those of us who love the English countryside as well as English literature, this book is one too keep in the rucksack while walking or cycling in the paths taken by (and written about) by Jane Austen, whose popularity never wanes. It revives one's desire to return to sites and experience them through the eyes and times of Jane Austen. Written and Photographed by the Edwards's who truly appreciate the heritage of England, they bring it to life for their readers.

This survey of the places where Jane Austen lived and visited and worked is by far the best of the various ones similar. There have been attempts to guide visitors to the various sites before, but none as good or successful or carefully researched as this one. I have bought several copies as gifts for others whom I know would enjoy this travelogue. It is most highly recommended.

The pictures are not enough. Especially those about the houses which Jane and her family lived in. The words are quite boring. It is more suitable to be categorized as a tour guide rather than a book introducing Jane Austen's England.
