Coast: Our Island Story
A Journey of Discovery Around Britain's Coastline
Nick Crane sets off on a journey of discovery - to tell the story of our glorious coast
This is the first book to be written by a Coast presenter in a narrative format and it will become the definitive guide to our coastline.
Nick Crane brings his geographer's eye and love of the British landscape to take us on an enthralling journey along our coastline. Both a celebration of and reference guide to the the coast, Nick draws on all the elements that have made the TV series such a success, from local history to national defence, forts and ports, fishermen and artists, sacred buildings and detailed cartography, as well as taking in iconic landmarks, seaside holidays and, of course, wildlife.
Nick's evocative prose and extensive knowledge infuse this book, which combined with two colour plate sections, make this an unmissable purchase for all fans of the British coast.
