    Jane Austen spent most of her life in two Hampshire villages, where her father was a clergyman and farmer. Yet while the Regency townscape of Bath described in her novels has been studied and celebrated, this is the first book to focus on the agricultural backdrop to her life and work. Drawing on her letters and other family documents, and richly illustrated with contemporary paintings and prints, it vividly recreates the life of rural England during the Napoleonic Wars.
