Beautiful, full colour photos and diagrams, a fascinating chapter on each of the important geological and geomorphological aspects of the area (including buildings and industry), and an author who knows his stuff and can write it down with an easy and authoritative style.
It holds a wealth of knowledge for cavers, as well as walkers and other users of England’s first National Park and will no doubt please newcomers and seasoned Peak District lovers alike.
Overall a book that I would recommend to anyone with an interest in the Peak District who wishes to gain more “in depth” knowledge of the area without having to digest the many scientific works on the area because the author has done it for you.
This recently published book tells the story of the evolution of the Peak District's rocks and scenery. Beautifully illustrated, it is written for the general reader and contains numerous stunning photographs and excellent explanatory diagrams.
