A vivid, personal tour of England's most misunderstood county, from seaside piers to empty marshes and New Town tower blocks, which reveals a landscape and a story like no other. Alongside Essex Man and TOWIE, there's the Essex that gave birth to the first Puritan settlers in America, welcomed refugees from Europe, and housed underworld fugitives and bombed-out East Enders - a place where dreamers and makers, punk poets, anarchist sects and inventors all found inspiration. Includes an illustrated "Walks & Wanders" section with links to online routes.
