You have to love the coast!,
This review is from: Coast: A Celebration of Britain's Coastal Heritage (Paperback)
I caught only a few episodes of the TV series and it left me wanting more. Our coast is amazing - there are few things more powerful in destruction and beauty than the sea and our little island's coast is incredibly varied and vulnerable yet strong.
I was surprised by how little text there is in this book. The pictures, on the other hand, are plentiful and good quality. The writing is really there to provide information about the pictures, and the photos are really what I want when I buy this sort of book.
Although the TV series did perhaps do more to capture the imagination, it has the advantages of moving pictures and of sound. The book is worth having as an addition to your coffee table reading. Certainly anyone who hails from a coastal region will want to read "their bit"!
