9780141029221: Britain and Ireland's Best Wild Places: 500 Essential Journeys

Storm-battered headlands, hidden waterfalls, tumbledown cottages, the ruins of haunted chapels deep in forgotten woods, medieval Green Men, old mines and quarries being recaptured by nature, rusting sea-forts tottering on sandbanks ...

Britain and Ireland are full of wild places, some remote, many often astonishingly close to home. Christopher Somerville has travelled through fields and green lanes, in forests and mountains and on lonely coasts, seeking out his favourite 500 untamed treasures. This book will show you how everyone can discover a piece of the wild for themselves.

Review:

An excellent survey ... Somerville belongs to the fine tradition of British nature writers that [is] at once informative and poetic (Colin Tudge Financial Times)

A wonderful tome for anyone seeking wilderness on their doorstep ( Country Walking)

Brilliant and heartfelt ... magnificent ... an extraordinary work which looks set to reconfigure our relationship with the great outdoors ( Sunday Telegraph)

A true compendium of the wild coast and countryside ... you are left with the impression that here is a writer with whom you would like to spend time ( Country Life)

Utterly charming ... a wonderful book and elegant reference guide ( Irish Times)

Book Description:

'Packed with unknown, exotic sounding locations, this truly is a book to rouse the explorative spirit within'
