Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The Hoo Peninsula is a rich weave of water and earth at the edge of the Thames Estuary. It's bordered by two rivers, the Thames to the north and the Medway to the south, and has been preserved from the sweeping tides by a sea wall. #2 The Hoo is a unique place that is defined by its watery, peninsular landscape. It has long been defined by its wild and shifting edges. #3 The Thames Estuary has been designated as a Wetlands of International Importance, and its marshes have been protected by the Ramsar Convention. However, these protections mean little if nobody is willing to honor them. #4 The language used to describe protected areas is often lacking in vision and enthusiasm, and the lack of a suitable language contributes to the invisibility of certain landscapes.
