An original, well-illustrated introduction to the land of Wales, using soil types as the main factor in analysing landscape character, and the way in which land has been used as a resource. The emphasis is on a holistic view of land and ecology as they affect human well-being.
This beautifully illustrated volume is a readily understandable introduction to the landscape of Wales. ‘Gold Under Bracken’ looks at soil types as a means of appreciating Welsh landscape features, such as dunes, heaths and lowland bogs. It also suggests how our countryside has evolved over time. Excursions and walks throughout Wales are suggested to exemplify the variety of our landscape. An essential read for those wishing to get to know the mountains, hills and valleys of Wales better.
