An introductory guidebook to the best walking in the Cevennes region of southern France, describing 16 day-walks in the southern Cevennes (based around Le Vignan), 15 day-walks in the northern Cevennes (based around Florac) and a 5-day trek around Mont Lozère. Although just across the River Rhone from Provence, the Cevennes is one of France's wild and unknown regions. Resembling the Scottish Highlands in places (similar in height at a maximum of 1567m, but warmer and with fewer midges), the region includes the 230,000 sq km Parc National des Cevennes and the upper reaches of the Tarn gorge. First introduced to a wider world by Caesar's crossing and then by the young Robert Louis Stevenson and his ?Walks with a Donkey' (1879), the Cevennes still has much that can be freshly explored. Compared with Provence the landscapes are harsher, more mountainous, less populated. The weather is more extreme: winters are cold, windblown and snowy, summers are dry and hot. The Cevennes attracts the walker and explorer who has a taste for a more rugged and subtler landscape. This is Janette Norton's third Cicerone guide to France, following on from her Haute Savoie and Provence guides. Based in the north around Florac and in the south around Le Vigan, the guide explores the walking potential of the region in 31 half- to full-day walks and the well-known five-day circuit of Mont Lozère.

Andalucía is a region of contrast. There are wild mountains and extensive marshes, dry semi-desert and barren karst, but also leafy woodlands laced with murmuring streams. The biodiversity is the highest of any of the Spanish regions. Andalucía is the stronghold of the endangered Iberian Lynx. Herds of wild Ibex roam the mountains and large numbers of vultures and eagles nest on remote, precipitous cliffs. In the wind-beaten dune scrub, the Mediterranean Chameleon shelters, while huge numbers of waterfowl feed in the marshes. Each corner of this, the largest of Spain's autonomous regions, is different, but all share one characteristic - they all have jewels of natural areas that for one reason or another stand out among all others. Andalucía is too large and diverse to do it justice in a single guidebook. This book covers the western half - roughly the provinces of Huelva, Seville, Cádiz and Málaga. Like all other Crossbill Guide, it answers two questions: what makes this area so special, and how you can see this for yourself. The book describes the flora and fauna, landscape and traditional land use of this region, plus 18 detailed routes and 28 sites covering Coto Doñana, Cádiz and the strait of Gibraltar, Alcornocales, and Sierra de Grazalema, to name a few, with concrete indications on where and how to find the birds, wildlife and flora.

The Kuusamo area : South-east of Lapland lies the small town of Kuusamo. The land surrounding this town is surrounded by taiga, peatlands, lakes and meadows - not unlike southern Lapland. However, the hilly landscape, the calcareous soils and the old mossy spruce forests support a slightly different (and very rich) flora and fauna. For this reason, the Kuusamo area is included in our Crossbill Guide to Finnish Lapland.
