About 30 miles south-west of Land’s End is the low group of rocks and islands that form the Isles of Scilly. Mysterious, romantic and beautiful, they have long exercised the imagination of story tellers and historians. In this New Naturalist volume she examines the many aspects that make the islands and their flora and fauna so unique: their geography, geology and climate, the people of the islands, the way they used the land, and its present day management. She brings to life the major kinds of habitats found in Scilly: the heath landsbird watchers, the coast, cultivated fields, and wetlands. She also discusses the people who have been important in the study of the island flora and fauna, and tells the story of the rise in popularity of the islands for birdwatchers.

Review:

'! a fully rounded and wonderfully detailed natural history of England's only ocean archipelago. It works on several levels, as a guide, as a wildlife encyclopedia and as a lyrical celebration of a special place. Rosemary Parslow has written a classic book to add to the remarkable swell of New Naturalist masterpieces in recent years.' Peter Marren, British Wildlife 'Authoritative, yet readable, this book lives up to the high reputation of its brand ! by the beach bucketful.' Andrew Cooper, BBC Wildlife '!a priceless treasure trove of wildlife information.' Kentish Times 'Beautiful photos, beautiful language, beautiful islands and a beautiful book!' Cornwall Today 'Buy this book; you won't be disappointed.' The London Naturalist
