An invaluable introduction to the upland regions of Britain – their structure, climate, vegetation and animal life, their present and past uses and the problems of their conservation for the future. This edition is exclusive to newnaturalists.com

Moorland, mountain-top and upland grazing occupy over a third of the total living space of the British Isles, and, of all kinds of land, have suffered least interference by man. Mountains and moorlands provide the widest scope for studying natural wild life on land.

Professor Pearsall died in 1964. This new edition has been revised by his friend and pupil, Winifred Pennington. The book remains an invaluable introduction to the upland regions of Britain – their structure, climate, vegetation and animal life, their present and past uses and the problems of their conservation for the future.

Review:

‘A most useful and lucid survey. It should be a real help to visitors and also residents in those parts towards understanding and enjoying the things that lie around them.’ The Times Literary Supplement

‘This is a book that will surely be read and quoted fifty years hence.’ Countryman

‘A book for the professional as well as for the amateur ... full of wisdom about the history, the soils, the plants and the creatures on the mountains and moorlands of Britain.’ Guardian

‘It is doubtful whether any other author could, single-handedly, have produced such a well-balanced picture of the wildlife of an area. His book is illustrated by a really magnificent series of colour photographs of hill country.’ Weekly Scotsman
