"First captivated by the Burren in the early 1970s, Gordon D'Arcy has spent over 30 years living on its edge and exploring its remarkable natural heritage. Now he celebrates the region and its people with thought-provoking essays and attractive watercolours that convey a deep affection and intimacy. Showing the wide scope of this unique landscape's natural history as well as its rich human history, topics range from floral forays and wildlife encounters to social issues such as conservation, farming, tourism and education. He pays tribute to the people with whom he shares the wonders of the Burren and who have contributed to an understanding and appreciation of it." - Book cover
