Wilderness Britain

Anthony Burton, Author A. Deutsch $35.95 (194p) ISBN 978-0-233-97640-2
Though Britain has no vast tracts of undeveloped land, it is well endowed with small, diverse landscapes that combine history and natural beauty. Burton guides us through a dozen wild areasfrom the moors of Cornwall and Devon to the fens and marshes of East Anglia to Scotland's Cape Wrath. He takes us on rambles among the hills of Wales, the Peak and Lake Districts, the Highlands. No part of the land has escaped the touch of humanity, yet that fact only enhances the mystery of these isolated places. Nature-lovers and hikers will enjoy Burton's introduction to wilderness Britain. Lewinski's photographs, in color and black and white, go beyond illustration to express his own reaction to the landscapes. (March)
