Commissioned by the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths Conservation Trust, the book priced at £14.99 - with over 80 fantastic colour images - considers the heathlands' future and it management in the context of climate change, and how to safeguard it for future generations.
240 million years in the making, the story of the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths is a rare and fascinating one. Travel back through time to the dawn of the age of dinosaurs, discover monsters and myths, and reveal a dramatic history of the people and lives of a land that still bears the scars of war. Out of it all emerges a landscape of exquisite, wild beauty still privately owned yet free to all to enjoy – the amazing tale of the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths.
"If we are to look after our precious natural places it is essential that we understand the relationships between people, wildlife and the landscapes that they share. A walk on the Pebblebed Heaths is a walk alongside the people who created it. This wonderful story reveals to us the heritage of the past. The current enlightened management continues that heritage".

For most of his life he has studied the wildlife of his home county for his popular BBC television programmes, but little did he realise the incredible story behind a simple little stone until now.
