BEST-KNOWN as a long-time champion of eco-tourism with a special interest in Africa, Dorset author Brian Jackman has been writing about the world’s wild places since the 1970s. At the same time, his monthly “Wild About Dorset” countryside column has been a regular feature in the Eggardon and Colmers View Parish Magazine for the past ten years. These essays have now been put together to produce a book to delight all who love Dorset’s natural world. WILD ABOUT DORSET – the nature diary of a Westcountry parish paints a vivid portrait of a unique corner of the county, and is embellished by a cover specially commissioned by the acclaimed landscape artist Liz Somerville, and stunning colour illustrations by Carry Akroyd, one of Britain’s foremost wildlife artists.  Brian has lived in the shadow of Eggardon for 50 years, and besides being a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society he is also a trustee of the George Adamson Wildlife Preservation Trust and an ambassador for the Tusk Trust.
