On the plus side, it's obvious that a lot of time and research went into writing this book. The author has a real passion for his work, that's evident throughout.
Unfortunately, I found the book too wordy and not really what I expected, based on the cover and title.
What I had expected was more of a "point form" format, highlighting numerous gems in nature often overlooked. Instead this book is filled with very detailed, at times, meandering accounts of various walks the author has taken and similar information. It did not hold my attention .
May be of interest to a lot of hikers, backpackers... but not for me.
