Comprising the major part of the southern Iberian peninsula, the al-Andalus region is seen by many as an area of outstanding natural beauty and rare wildlife - from the vision of a single Bearded Vulture soaring majestically in the sky to small herds of Spanish Ibex in mountain passes - its richness and diversity is unrivalled in Europe.Yet, less than 700 years ago, there were Bearded Vultures in every valley in the region, herds of Ibex roamed the cliffs and screes of the entire coast, and wild wolves prowled in the night.This evocative volume takes readers on a journey through the region, from the coast and green valleys to the mountains, showing how the land has changed - sometimes for better and sometimes for worse - but always drawing the reader's eye to the amazing sights that flawlessly capture the heart and soul of al-Andalus and its rich heritage.
Clive Finlayson has lived his whole life in southern Spain. This volume is his way of bringing to light the amazing story of Andalucia and its natural beauty.
