The book can be highly recommended - and must be considered a must for visitors to national parks in southern Europe. In addition to useful factual information (such as opening hours, prices, etc.), there are tour suggestions, real information about the park's flora and fauna, climate conditions and much more. In addition, the book is packed with beautiful photographs - which partly illustrate, but which also entice the reader in a fascinating way. A great - but also useful - guide.

I have spent the last few days reading in your book. It is simply excellent. Anyone with an interest in nature in Europe will greatly enjoy this book, which has it all in the form of a very informative text and good photos. Congratulations on the release. I myself have written three nature books, two of them at Gyldendal, and therefore know how big a job it is and how little economy there is in writing books. All the more reason to congratulate the great work behind such an excellent book and at the same time express hope for a good sale.

I am in the process of looking at your book about the National Parks in Europe - it is a fantastically useful and beautiful book, which I will definitely take as a starting point if I should again be lured south by Grethe and our travel companions
Asger Nielsen, former technical chief, Denmark
How skilled you both are! Good exciting answers and comments and no matter how many exciting parks you get to visit, the book is packed with exciting reading and good, yes fantastic photos, and I read in it because it is simply exciting, beautiful and interesting. Thank you for making it yourself and shaping it into a fully-fledged nature guide.
Peter Østergaard Larsen, forester and nature guide, Denmark
An impressively beautiful book. In addition to an exciting historical description of Europe's climate, geology, animal and plant life, you get an incomparably thorough review of the 57 national parks. Even if you do not plan to go for a trip to a national park, I would say that if just a little corner of your heart beats for wildlife, then you will find joy in "The National Park Guide". I have rarely seen such a well-crafted work..

Dear Brian and Lone,

It is an extraordinary volume on the wilderness and biodiversity of the Mediterranean biodiversity hotspot.
