The National Parks make up some of the most celebrated and diverse areas of Britain's unique rural landscape. Each with its own distinct character, from the rugged mountainous landscape of the Cairngorms in Scotland to the open heathland and ancient expanses of woodland in the New Forest, they are home to some of the most varied wildlife to be found anywhere in the country. Renowned National Parks authority Roly Smith gets to the heart of what makes each of Britain's National Parks unique, imparting his expert advice along the way. Accompanied by stunning photography illustrating the parks in all their natural beauty, this is an indispensable companion for anyone with a love of the British countryside, and the special role the National Parks play in the preservation and celebration of all it has to offer. The book also features a foreword by Sir Chris Bonington, renowned mountaineer and Honorary Life Vice President of the Council for National Parks.
