A beautifully presented softback book describing the landscape, natural history and historic monuments of 16 areas of Fermanagh, covering the whole county. It is well illustrated with maps and small colour photos, ranging from a Curlew on its nest to the carved stone figures of White Island. Having grown up in the county, it is a delight to have a copy. It would be valuable to anyone interested in the scenery or natural history of Fermanagh.
