Synopsis

Dartmoor is one of the few wilderness areas remaining in the UK - beautiful, mysterious and sometimes dangerous. From its rich, moss-covered ancient woodlands and rushing rivers to its sparse high moorland and bleak prison, Dartmoor has inspired artists, poets and musicians for centuries.



Since prehistoric times, man has lived and worked on Dartmoor, leaving behind mysterious stone circles, monuments and the remains of ancient settlements. From tin mining and quarrying to an ice factory and gun powder mills, man has endeavoured to make a living from Dartmoor, leaving his footprint in the wilderness.



This book contains a fascinating mixture of informative facts and mysterious tales. Here you will discover the wildlife, the history, the geography, the legends, the industry, the harshness and the inspiring wonder of one of England's most popular National Parks. This book illustrates why people are pulled back time and again to Dartmoor, which remains a wilderness untamed.

MICHELLE DIBB is a marketing consultant who spends most weekends exploring Dartmoor with her daughter. She has a degree in modern languages and used to enjoy travel before settling on the edge of the National Park, in Christow, Devon. She is an active member of her local community, and a good public speaker. In the course of compiling the book she has already been asked to give a talk to the Round Table and a local radio interview.
