Books Info:

A Walk in the Woods free pdf An illustrated tour of fifty of Britain's greatest woodland walks with specialist tree photographer and writer Archie Miles, published in association with the Woodland Trust. From beech woods, oak woods and pine woods to ancient forest, coastal woodland, ravine woodland and the very best arboreta, A Walk in the Woods ranges over twenty-five different topics and a wide geographical range, and includes encounters with some of Britain's most ancient and characterful trees. Complementing and crowning the series of nine regional woodland walking guides already published by Frances Lincoln, the book includes a Gazetteer with brief descriptive details and access information for the featured sites plus a shortlist of some of the best of the rest. The readable and deeply informed text describes the physical topography of each site, in context with the regional characteristics, incorporating information on vegetation, flora, wildlife habitats (with particular reference to rare, endangered or site specific species), as well as a wealth of social, cultural or industrial history. Spellbinding photographs taken throughout the seasons show the diverse interiors of the woodlands, with a range of views into and out of the woods, placing them in their landscape context. Also included are accompanying images of woodland details - fungi, flowers, wildlife, and historic features.
