The Welsh Marches' gentle countryside makes a delightful, miniature mosaic of ever-varying views. Lanes, tracks and paths criss-cross hills that are more mound than mountain, neither spectacularly high nor steep, attracting discerning naturalists and ramblers rather than mountaineers.
Who first discovered the wildlife of the Welsh Marches? Where did they go, and why were they interested? This fresh and fascinating blend of social and natural history tells of the lives and discoveries of bygone naturalists whose names adorn the pages of our ageing annals of natural history.
Contemporary naturalists will find interest in comparing their predecessors' discoveries of long ago with what has come to light recently, and feel encouraged to search for what still remains undiscovered as they potter through shady woods, by streams, and over quiet hills.
