This superbly illustrated book has been written with the object of stimulating people's interest in the wildlife and countryside of the South Downs National Park, not simply by highlighting some special plants and animals, but by giving readers a greater understanding of the evolution of the wild places, the history of nature conservation and the management of habitats and species.
"If you think the South Downs National Park is just about splendid hilltop views, then think again. This beautifully illustrated book not only provides an ecological history of the region but also neatly summarises its many delights, from the lime woods of Rook Clift and the Wealden heaths, through the hidden river valleys to the shingle beaches of Cuckmere Haven. The authors have done a splendid job corralling a wealth of information. Each page is full of mouth-watering images. If you want to learn about the National Park, you couldn't do better than start with this book."
- Andrew Branson, British Wildlife 25(1), October 2013
