  2. Book Reviews


This sumptuous publication is both a guide and a celebration of the beautiful border country that stretches the length of Wales, from coast to coast, from Chepstow to Prestatyn. When King Offa commissioned the building of this marvellous earthwork, could he possibly have imagined that over a thousand years later people would still be fascinated by the dyke? Jim Saunders enables armchair travellers to marvel at the wealth of wildlife or even dig into the turbulent history of borderlands.

'His photographs are simply stunning, capturing wonderful views and lovely landscapes through the seasons as well as the wildlife you are likely to see en route. A brilliant book.'
