Austen Country, located in Hampshire, a county in southern England, filled with rural countrysides and seaside resorts, was home and inspiration to famous author, Jane Austen. (It was also the birthplace of Charles Dickens, but as you can see from the title, this DVD is not about him.) Although Jane Austen moved several times throughout her life, the majority of her time was spent in Hampshire county. For Jane Austen, living in Hampshire, amongst the hills and its natural beauties, was where she found happiness, peace, and inspiration. In this informative and engaging documentary of Hampshire, viewers are enabled to travel on a walking tour of Jane Austen's England and journey to places “where she lived, holidayed, visited, and vividly immortalized in her novels.”
