Dartmoor (Collins New Naturalist)
In this addition to the long-running New Naturalist series, Ian Mercer sets out to explore every aspect of this important area of southern Devon. Focusing not only on its extensive history and physical landscape, but also its cultural place within Great Britain, this is both a comprehensive and engaging look at the wild and rugged landscape that has inspired so many poets, painters and musicians over countless centuries.
Explores the complex and fascinating history of one of southern England's greatest National Parks. Spanning miles of open moorland, it also hides small secluded river valleys, rare plants and endangered birds. Dartmoor is a place of variety, and has evolved in the public's mind from a forbidding place to that of romance and mystery.
