The Cairngorms: The Nature of the Land

£6.99

Product description

"The Cairngorms are the most important area for nature conservation in mountain Britain. Yet, they continue to be the scene of many unresolved debates about the balance that must be achieved between the needs of land management, the ambitions of developers and the aims of nature conservation and environment protection. However, in these wider debates, one can easily lose sight of the exceptional qualities these mountains have to offer. The Cairngorms are one of the finest wild areas left in Britain, and in this book we gain access to its interior. Rawdon Goodier's text carries us to the heart of these mountains, where the photographs of Colin Baxter then shape and colour the images before us. We are enveloped by the seasons, forms, textures and life of the land - and we sense in our journey something of the vast treasury of natural riches which is the special nature of the Cairngorms."

Book in very good condition.
