About this book

Where in the crowded British Isles would you look for wildernesss? Surprisingly, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland have a variety of wild landscapes unrivalled anywhere in the world. Call of the Wild was published to celebrate 25 years of the Outdoor Writers' Guild (OWG), the only group of media professionals exclusively involved in the outdoors. It is edited by Roly Smith, President and former Chairman of the OWG. The 25 authors celebrate their favourite places, ranging from remote coastal islands to special places in Sussex and Suffolk, from unknown hills to famous mountains, from standing stones to forest glades. OWG members go walking, rock climbing and kayaking to reach these wild places. Rediscover the British Isles through their eyes in this full colour hardback, lavishly illustrated with 130 colour photographs.
