By: Charles Nelson (Author)
160 pages, colour photos
The Burren and the Aran Islands, southwest Ireland, are renowned worldwide for their beautiful wild flowers and plants. Charles Nelson has selected 136 of the most widely occurring plus a number of special plants. By illustrating each plant with a colour photograph, showing it in the wild alongside space to record the place and date of discovery, this becomes a souvenir of rambles in search of wild flowers. Introduced by short chapters on the region plus user instructions, the photographs are grouped according to flower colour and pages are colour-coded so one can flick to the appropriate section.
