"The Lake District: lakes and mountains, rivers, marshes,cliffs, dunes, dales and fells - an enthralling sweep of scenery under immense pressure from man. Here the wildlife haunts, rather than the tourist centres, are considered, with their underlying geology and climate emphasised, so that the whole ecological picture falls into shape. Ranging from Lakeland's long coastline to its eastern border hills, the inshore waters and rivers with their aquatic life are covered, the central mountains with their alpine flora and splendid birds, the Solway wildfowl marshes, the fells, the peat mosses and the forests. Whether you wish to see dotterel or black guillemot, royal fern or mountain saxifrage, sea-bird citadel or haunt of pine marten and wild deer, this is an excellent guide for naturalists of any persuasion or degree of enthusiasm."
