These memoirs of the great fellwalker Alfred Wainwright, author of the Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells and many other volumes of walking guides and sketchbooks, are full of his thoughts on life and on his experiences on the fells.
Wainwright writes about his boyhood in Blackburn, his work and interests as a young man, and the visit to the Lake District at the age of 23 which kindled in him a lasting passion for the fells.
He reveals how he set about researching and compiling the Pictorial Guides, the labour of love which occupied so many years of his life.
For walkers and other lovers of the Lakeland fells, this is a great read.
