Book: Nature of Snowdonia

A Beginner’s Guide to the Upland Environment

By Mike Raine

The first complete field guide for the mountains of Snowdonia through the seasons, its  plants, animals and rocks.

Everything you’re likely to see in the hills at that time of year is here in one volume.

Follow the seasons of Snowdonia; winter is the perfect time for studying rocks and lichen; in spring the bog flowers flourish and beautiful orchids bloom; summer brings fruits and flowers, and the treas are in full leaf; in autumn an amazing display of funghi appear, the hill farms are busy again in preparation for winter and as the nights draw in it is time again to sit beside the fire and tell tales of local myth and legend.

A little knowledge of thyme, tormentil and thrift will enhance your day in the hills.

Fossil trilobytes and roche moutonnée (rock sheep), bogbean beer and caterpillar fungus, are just some of the fascinating things you will discover.

Mike Raine

Mike started hillwalking on the Yorkshire moors in the early seventies and graduated to rock climbing as a teenager.

Having started working in the outdoors in the early eighties in centres and as a freelancer, he then studied and trained to become a geography teacher and spent 12 years working in secondary schools.

Today he works full time at Plas Y Brenin, the National Mountain Centre, as a mountaineering instructor and coach.

Mike heads up the environment department at PYB where he also runs weekend and week-long courses about Snowdonia’s upland environment.

As a keen rock climber he is still adding new routes in North Wales.
