Not Just a Pretty Place – Survival in Snowdonia is a collection of 32 stories linked by the theme of survival. Some things are thriving whilst others, like the Snowdon Lily, are just hanging on.

“The stories link landscape, people and wildlife into an optimistic view of the future with subjects as diverse as the rare and elusive pine marten, freshwater pearl mussels and local foods.  Underneath the humour and optimism, however, there are serious messages about the viability of our lifestyles.” Iolo Williams 

The book is priced at £7.50 and stocked at many bookshops across Wales. It can be purchased via the publisher’s website or online book retailers. Alternatively if you send me a cheque payable to Snowdonia Manor for £10 (inclusive of UK delivery) I will send you a signed copy. My address is:
