Get set for more fun adventures,
This review is from: Wild Guide: Devon, Cornwall and South West (Wild Guides) (Paperback)
If you have any of Daniel Start's other books: Wild Swimming, Wild Swimming Coast, ..... France etc., then you will be over the moon with this one. In the same style as those others, the area is broken down into regions, with a location map, GPS coordinates (and a British Grid conversion at the back of the book for those of us who think folding out a paper map is an essential part of the adventure experience). Then each region has headings such as secret beaches, food, sunset hilltops, accommodation, sacred and ancient etc. each with the necessary info about how to get there who to contact and some well researched little gems of local information. This is a first class guide for anyone who wants something different from a day out (or weekend, or longer) and not only does it cover interests you may already have but you will find yourself going, 'oooh, I fancy trying that out'. Hence, I now have a very long list of new things to see and do.
Again, the quality of the photos, as in all of Daniel's publications is first class. I've been to a lot of the places in the book, I've taken lots of photos but Daniel somehow has a way of taking a photo that leaves me thinking 'why didn't I see it like that?'.
And the book itself seems designed for adventure: compact, with large in-folded cover sleeves for use as page markers, and the covers are coated giving the feel that they are both highly durable and water resistant. I certainly plan to thoroughly test out that durability.
