Description

The Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, the Lake District and the northern moors and plains of England form a natural region and have been both treasured for their beauty and biodiversity and reviled as unproductive deserts to be improved and reclaimed. This contest between two views of nature, conservation versus development, use versus delight is at the centre of this book. Looks at our encounters with the natural world and describes how conflict between using and enjoying the land gradually arose and gave birth to modern conservation ideas.
