    Welcome to your tour of the wine-growing world. Wine has rolled its barrel from the shores of the Black Sea to the mountains of the Andes, following humans and their dreams. But just how did a Pyrenean grape variety end up in Uruguay? And by what means were grapevines able to reach Japan? This book goes back through time to retrace the grape's conquest of the world, stopping in each wine-making country, from the oldest (Georgia) to the most recent (Poland), to discover wines past and present, while looking to future producers in places such as Tahiti and Sweden. The atlas works on a spread-by-spread basis. For each region there is a large-scale, specially drawn map, an overview of the area's history of wine production and a list of its main grape varieties, along with details of its world ranking in production volume, annual production, proportion of black and white grapes produced, month of the grape harvest, date of first viticulture (and which culture brought it) and suggestions of appelations to taste. The end section contains further statistics and information on grape varieties, characteristics and terroirs. This large-scale publication, encompassing 56 countries, 100 maps and 8,000 years of wine history, is a tour de force in wine publishing.

    A comprehensive guide to Cairn Gorm, the most popular mountain in the Cairngorms National Park. Written by the Head Ranger of the Cairngorm Mountain Ranger Service. A magnificent gift and reference book illustrated with over 100 pictures. Cairn Gorm is a high granite mountain in the Grampian Highlands of Scotland which is rarely far from controversy. Few people have witnessed as close-up how the mountain has progressed through the last twenty tumultuous years as Nic Bullivant, who has been Head Ranger there throughout the changes from an old chair-uplift system, through the development of Scotland's only mountain railway, and on to the present commercial operator. This book is written as if by your personal guide who intimately knows the region, drawing you into his world, engaging your interest and then revealing the meanings and explanations of the obvious and the secret. Walk on mountain paths, explore high corries, tread the immense mountain plateaux. Observe with him the mountain wildlife and the unconscious humour of the visitor who has never been on a mountain before. Finally come closer to understanding what it is that turns people into such dedicated advocates of the conservation of the Cairngorms. There are messages here of optimism and expectation, advice for suitors of the high tops and would-be rangers. This book will get you nearer to understanding the Cairngorms and cherishing them, even if you have never been there.
