The "Travellers' Nature Guides" are a new concept in travel books, addressing today's enhanced interest in ecology and the preservation of the countryside. Full of colour photographs, black and white line drawings and the charming colour illustrations from wildlife artist Michael Wood, they are a visual feast of France's natural heritage. Divided into regions, the local flora, fauna and landscape are described in depth, yielding little known facts pertinent to each specific area. For keen nature-lovers, children and people with an inquisitive natural mind, these are ideal holiday companions, giving a fullness to a visit other travel guides omit. And with the added overall emphasis on conservation, a lesson is to be learned, ensuring these wondrous places stay preserved for future generations to enjoy too. - Lucy Watson
