The Great Hedge is part history, part detective story, part travel book. Above all, it's a great read.
Moxham has written a parable at once light-handed and melancholy about the cruelty and folly fo the empire.
Both scholarly and funny - a rare combination, It surprised me and I hugely enjoyed it.

We travel with him as he searches for remnants of this massive but forgotten relic of the Raj. Moxham, with the help of both friends and strangers, travels with limited budget to rural areas of India during his holidays for several years.
Written in an informal style, I got a real sense of the area and the fun of the chase. For an 'off the beaten path' foray into the history of India in the 19th century, grab a copy of this and go exploring for several hours.
There is a short glossary, chart of weights and measurements and bibliography in the back and a general area map in the front.
