From the cover: This is a signature very familiar to thousands of people who walk in the high places of the Lake District. It appears in each one of the seven remarkable Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells that have become indispensable pocket companions of all Lakeland fellwalkers.
In this beautiful book, while maintaining that every walk in the Lake District is a personal favourite, Wainwright has selected eighteen fellwalks diat give him special pleasure. They have been described afresh for this book one of the few Wainwright titles to have a set text instead of being reproduced from negatives taken from his original manuscripts.
Wainwrights evocative descriptions and pithy asides are superbly matched by the wonderful photographs by Deny Brabbs, famous for his illustrations in James Herriots Yorkshire. This is a book for everyone to enjoy it is a unique portrait of Englands most beautiful mountain scenery for those who love the English countryside in all its moods, a wonderful memento for those who have retired from fellwalking or who live too far away and will treasure the memories invoked by this book, and the many fortunate people who still have the excitement of the high places before them.
