Description

Featuring a mixture of history, folklore and stories of interest, this book explores the culture and wildlife of the New Forest. From it deer, which for centuries were hunted exclusively by the Kings of England, to the thousands of trees that were the cornerstone of the English Navy, this fascinating volume illustrates how flora and fauna are interwoven with the forest's heritage, and pays special attention to its wildlife. As well as providing a backdrop of history, this affectionate look at the forest will inspire readers to explore the area themselves. Each story illustrates the diversity of treasures that the national park has to offer, from its ancient history through to current events and attractions. The author, a semi-professional photographer, also reveals tips on how to spot and photograph the forest's abundant wildlife. Richly illustrated with over seventy striking photographs, this exploration of the spirit of the New Forest will appeal to all those who visit, work or live in this cherished part of southern England.show more
