About this book

This book is a celebration of the natural wonders of the Sefton Coast sand dunes between Liverpool and Southport. Lavishly illustrated with photographs, maps and diagrams, The Sands of Time introduces the interested general reader to the origin and land use history of this coast and shows how sand dunes are formed and develop over time. The reader is also offered a unique insight into the animals and plants that live on the sand dunes as the author examines how this internationally important area is being conserved and managed for the future.
