Pocket-sized full-colour guide describing six long car tours, each spread over 2-3 days (Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean). But the major part of the book is devoted to 22 main walks and their many variations. There is a lovely pastoral feel to the Sardinian countryside. Flocks of sheep graze on verdant grassy slopes, moufflons and wild boar roam the rugged highlands, and eagles hover silently above. Landscapes range from rocky windswept plains to rolling hills with lush pastures and sand dunes fringing a turquoise sea - all permeated by the fragrant odour of the Mediterranean macchia. The guide contains a fold-out touring map with plans of Sassari and Cagliari and large-scale (1:50,000) topo walking maps. There are no general transport timetables, but there is information about how to get to a walk with local transport if applicable (the public transport system is generally of little use to walkers; Sardinia is best explored by car). Free on-line update service. Series (50 destinations) dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times.
