Book of The Month
'No book review should be complete without constructive criticism, ... but it is extremely difficult to find fault with this edition, on any level. It’s a book you can dip into, with an abundance of beautiful colour photos and archival drawings, but really, Rock Lighthouse of Britain and Ireland deserves a full read. It truly is the ultimate work on Rock lighthouses'. The Lightkeeper/Nova Scotia Lighthouse Preservation Society
‘...entertaining and well-written accounts covering over a dozen trips worldwide... ...Dave succeeds in giving a snapshot of a particular type of expedition at a particular point in time. ... There is as much to learn from Dave’s examples of group interactions as from his information on planning, equipment, logistics and medical kits’. The Alpine Journal
'It is a beautifully-written study in which Edwards brilliantly captures the sights and sounds that greet him every time he steps out of his front door'. Bird Forum
'ONE of the many delights of At The Very End of The Road is the imaginative way in which author Phillip Edwards describes the songs of individual birds. ...his descriptions - scrupulously-detailed and authoritative - of the hunting behaviour of raptors, particularly merlins, sparrowhawks and peregrines. No other author, surely, has done it better. ...nature writing at its most refined. If the cliché can be forgiven, it is as pure as a mountain stream. Highly recommended'. RSPB Book Club
'Great writing doesn’t reveal all its secrets at once. I’m reading it for the fourth time - and enjoying it more than ever. It’s enchanting - yet still carries a quiet authority. Surely a classic of the future'. Amazon four-star review
'I enjoyed this excellent book very much although it was not quite what I imagined it would be. It is more a love story - the love the author has found for the place and the natural surroundings he has been lucky enough to find. Of interest to bird watchers, nature lovers and those with an interest in finding their own place in the world'. Amazon five-star review
'Phillip's knowledge and narration captures the pulse of place with his vibrant descriptions. He makes it easy for you to see and feel what he sees'. Amazon five-star review
