"Informative and poetic."
Britain and Ireland are full of wonderful wild places: storm- battered headlands, hidden waterfalls, tumbledown cottages, haunted ruins, forgotten woods, rusting sea-forts. Travel writer and avid walker Christopher Somerville has spent the last twenty-five years traversing the wilderness of Britain and Ireland, traveling through fields and green lanes, forests, mountains, and lonely coasts. Here he presents his five hundred favorite untamed places-each one a natural treasure. Whether you're a serious hiker or an armchair traveler, this is the book for you.
