About this book

Language: Dutch

The Veluwe is a large area of woodlands and heathlands in the middle of the Netherlands. A dry 'island' surrounded by rivers and  lowland meadows, it is the largest area of unbroken forest and heath in northwestern Europe. Crossbill Guide Veluwe is the first nature travel guide to extensively describe this area. From hundreds of kilometres of foot and cycling paths Dirk Hilbers has drawn together twenty routes. They have been designed so as to experience all landscapes of the Veluwe, making it the ideal guide for naturalists new to this area. Whether you are looking for grass snakes, wild boars, butterflies, migratory birds, or exceptional flora, with this guide you will easily find plants and animals.

The guide covers:
- Walking and cycling routes
- Flora and fauna
- Landscape
- Observation tips

This guide is very similar to the English Crossbill Guides, but the guide also contains a lot of extra basic information about wildlife, making it accessible to a wide audience, including daytrippers, holiday makers and the local population.

Summary in Dutch:
Veluwe is de eerste natuurreisgids die dit prachtige gebied zo uitvoerig beschrijft en de eerste Crossbill Guide voor Nederland. Uit de honderden kilometers wandel- en fietspaden heeft Dirk Hilbers een twintigtal routes samengesteld. Ze zijn zo ontworpen dat je er alle landschappen van de Veluwe meemaakt. De ideale veluwegids voor beginnende natuurliefhebbers. Of je nu op zoek bent naar een ringslang, everzwijnen, vlinders, trekvogels of bijzondere flora, je vindt de planten en dieren gemakkelijker met deze gids op zak.

- Wandel- en fietsroutes
- Flora en fauna
- Landschap
- Waarnemingstips

Qua opzet lijkt Veluwe erg op de andere Crossbill Guides. Hiernaast bevat de gids veel extra basisinformatie over wildlife waardoor het boek ook toegankelijk is voor het brede publiek, waaronder dagjesmensen, vakantiegangers en lokale bewoners.
