Galloway and the Borders

Galloway and the Borders Image

“Another volume in the widely-read New Naturalist series, this book is an in-depth study of the natural developments and history of Galloway and surrounding areas.

Often overlooked due to the reputation of natural habitat in other parts of the country, the author here conveys the diversity and magnificence of nature in the south of Scotland.

Galloway and the borders is an extremely varied region, from saltmarshes and shingle beaches to rocky islands and seabird stations. The wide range of hills, displaying a wealth of rich colours, give the area its dominant character. The varied selection of flora and fauna only add to the diversity.

‘A testament to the profound understanding that the author had of this corner of the world.’
BBC Wildlife‘…a magical and detailed guide to the natural history of this ‘unexpected Eden’ in Scotland.’
Country Homes & Interiors‘This excellent addition to the New Naturalist series seems certain to become the definitive reference for those with a love of Southern Scotland and its natural history.’
Scottish Bird News‘One of Britain's greatest field naturalists describes in detail that broad “chest” of upland country that lies just south of Scotland's slender neck between Edinburgh and Glasgow … the fluency of his style and his massive expertise in upland ecology draw out its huge beauty, wildlife riches and the perennial impact of humans upon its diverse landscapes’
Mark Cocker, The Guardian

Readers' opinions about Galloway and the Borders by Derek Ratcliffe

This book has reignited my passion for reading. It reminded me of the sheer joy that can be found in losing oneself in the pages of a good story. I can't wait to explore more books now.

I loved the powerful messages hidden within the story. The book tackled important social issues and made me ponder the world we live in. It's a must-read for everyone.

The world created in this book was unlike anything I've ever encountered. The author's imagination knows no bounds, and I was completely mesmerized by the fantastical setting.
