Description

This is Book 1 of a series of 8 Books about the Gardens of Stone National Park.  It comprises 400 pages and is a full colour work that includes information about the geology of the area and the significant geomorphology that has shaped the dramatic landscapes which characterise this very special national park in NSW.

Twenty- four walks take the reader/walker to places that most only dream of. It documents a rich tapestry of experiences encapsulated in very personal text that takes you with these adventurous explorers all the way. The hundreds of colour photographs, many by invited professionals, round out a total experience.

Cutting edge design has been employed by Natasha Foley to create a text that is difficult to put down and impossible to resist owning.

The next 7 books in this same series are now in production, and include hundreds of walks together with information about the climate, Aboriginal history, historical exploration and maps, the rivers and pollution, local history and place names, a comprehensive discussion and listing of the flora and fauna, the impact of European settlement and threatened species and environments.

This work as a whole sets a new benchmark for appreciating and understanding our heritage, how precious it is and what natural wonders there are in this most special of our NSW National Parks.
