This book explores the botanical richness and cultural heritage of the New Forest National Park. The New Forest has become an exceptional area for wildflowers, many of which were once common throughout the lowlands of Britain.
The Forest enjoys strong populations of many special wildflowers because it retains a living tradtion of free range domestic animals grazing its coastland, extensive commons and village greens. This book is an exploration of how the wildlife of the Forest is the natural expression of the lives and economy of the people of the Forest.
