Product description


Wild about Cornwall was chosen as Book of the Month by Tim Smit for the BBC Wildlife magazine: 'Thorougly recommeded.' (BBC Wildlife July 2007)'This is an excellent book for the family as well as for the specialist and the words, which accompany the pictures, are very informative.' (Packet Newspapers 23.02.07) For the full review see Packet Newspapers online'a book that truly qualifies as a "must have" for anyone who loves Cornwall and its natural history and wildlife.' (The Cornishman, 08.03.07)'David's latest venture gathers together all his talents and passions. Wild about Cornwall is a glossy picture-led book revealing the best places to go to experience the natural history of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.' (Western Morning News, 24.03.07)'This is riveting reading for naturalists, with the book's piece de resistance being the photography. Over 280 gorgeous colour images ... . If you enjoy reading our nature features, we promise you'll love this.' (Caravan Club Magazine, March 2007)'Beautifully designed, with a clear lay-out and exceptional photographic reproduction, it's a real gem.' (Western Morning News, 10.04.07) For the full review, see This is Devon'I would not be the least bit surprised, come the Guild awards for excellence next year, to find David Chapman once again among the serious contenders. ...'... Wild about Cornwall displays not only Nature's Art, but an artist at work.' (Terry Marsh, Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild Magazine, April 2007)'Details of the chosen locations include, where relevant, a brief history of the site, a description of the conservation strategies used there and a close look at some of the key species.' (Wild Cornwall, no. 102, Spring 2007)'Chapman's eye is such that the reader can be forgiven for feeling that nature compliantly arranged itself for the perfect photograph. But, of course, it is his ability to capture scenes from a different viewpoint that heightens the ordinary into the sublime.' (Tavistock Times Gazette, 05.04.07)


This work is a celebration of the natural history of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It features 40 sites, including: the best places to see flora and fauna in a variety of habitats across the county and on the islands; suggested walks; and, approximately 580 species.
