Wild Southwest: This is a colourful, richly illustrated introduction to southwest England’s most beautiful wild places, as well as its magnificent plant and animal wildlife. With a text that is both informative and entertaining, illustrated with Nigel’s stunning landscape and wildlife photography, this book aims both to inform and inspire, bringing to life the beauty of southwest England’s natural world.

Covering the four southwest counties of Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, environments included in this book encompass the region’s two national parks (Dartmoor and Exmoor) and its geological World Heritage Site (the Jurassic Coast), as well as a host of wider environments, ranging from Somerset’s Mendip Hills and Dorset’s chalk grasslands, to the coasts of Devon and Cornwall, the lovely Isles of Scilly, and the stunning submarine environment that surrounds the southwest peninsula.

Plant and animal wildlife ranges from bee orchids to basking sharks, the book describing and illustrating some of the most colourful and iconic species – as well as quite a few that are barely known outside specialist circles – that call southwest England home.

Overall, Wild Southwest presents a wide-ranging overview of much of the best that the southwest has to offer, aimed at the general reader who has a love of the natural world in general, and of southwest England in particular.
