Some are on hilltops or in remote places, while others, almost unnoticed, stand beside the roadside. Many follies were built in the eighteenth century when great landowners, after their Grand Tour of Europe, returned to their estates and embellished them with reminders of the classical buildings they had visited. The history of follies is traced, from the first prospect tower, through the golden era of the first half of the eighteenth century to the Second World War. The numerous illustrations demonstrate the enormous variety of follies that can still be found throughout England.")

On his web site Stories in Stone, the author describes his book as: “In my new book, Stories in Stone, I will weave together natural and cultural history to explore the untold life of building stone. The project grows out of my 20-year passion for geology and desire to strengthen my bonds to nature. Each chapter will focus on a particular type of rock and describe my search to learn more about the stone, the particular building or building style that exemplifies its use, and the people involved in construction. Along the way I will interview geologists, explore quarries, and consult with preservationists and historians in order to give readers greater insight into these structures.” (This book is available on amazon.com and other online bookseller web sites.)
