Wild Flowers and Where to Find Them in the Chilterns

Following on from his successful illustrated guides to the wild flowers of northern England, Laurie Fallows has collaborated with his daughter, Gay, to focus on the beautiful chalk hills and grassland of the Greater Chilterns in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire. Threaded with deep valleys and streams, featuring sections of several long-distance paths and nature reserves and dotted with delightful villages, this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty attracts visitors all year round. Members of The Chiltern Society have contributed their expertise and enthusiasm to create an invaluable guide to the best flora and most rewarding walks in the area. This handy paperback gives straightforward details of the identification, habitat, folklore, and culinary and medicinal use of all the common wild flowers, while the recommended walks provide an easy way to find them.
