Description - Walking in the Caucasus by Peter Nasmyth
Remarkably, Georgia - no larger than Switzerland - ranks in the world's top twelve countries for geographical diversity. It contains the heart of the Caucasus mountains - larger and more dramatic than the Alps - subtropical wetlands, a Black Sea coast, semi-desert, all peppered with ancient stone towers and an exceptional history. But this walker's paradise remains virtually undiscovered. Peter Nasmyth has now provided the first comprehensive walker's guide, including birds, flora and fauna, to Europe's most diverse landscape. The book contains clear directions, excellent maps, GPS references, local history/contacts and a superb selection of colour photographs.
