Product Description

Review

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

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By David Trent on 2 Jun. 2006
Format: Paperback
Compared with the companion volume on Spain, this nature guide is a considerable disappointment - I do not know how they got away with omitting an "Access and Information" section for each site entry.
Reading the volume on Spain one gets the impression that the author has actually visited each site - evidenced by much useful and practical detail. Not so with this nature guide to France; the detail appears lacking.
Considering the extensive bibliography of the author, this is an unexpected disappointment.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By S. Jenkins on 27 July 2009
Format: Paperback
This book covers a large and varied country and yet manages to provide impressive detail on many different habitats and their species.
Any individual site information is easily obtainable from the Internet or travel guides.
