Written with the general reader - the walker, the lover of the countryside - firmly in mind, this beautifully photographed record opens the door onto a fascinating story of ancient oceans, forests, shallow seas, and ice. Over millions of years, the stunning limestone landscape has been laid down at the bottom of tropical seas, deformed by movements in the earth's crust and shaped giant glaciers and, in our own time, the simple effects of rivers and rain water. Told from an expert geologist's perspective, this book will reveal the secrets behind its evolution, opening up an amazing new perspective for anyone who loves this wild and magnificent area.
