For this spectacular new edition of the fell walking classic, virtually all the photographs have been retaken by Wainwright's original Lakeland photographer, Derry Brabbs.
After completing his Pictorial Guides, A. Wainwright was persuaded to write a narrative, descriptive account of his eighteen favourite Lake District walks. Described by a man who was both a master fell walker and a lover of the hills with a rare facility for writing about them, the result is a book of unique quality.
The text has been updated to take account of minor changes in the terrain and the result is not merely the most beautiful but also the most authoritative and useful book on the much loved Lakeland hills
For this new edition of the fell walking classic, virtually all the photographs have been retaken by the legendary lakeland photographer, Derry Brabbs. The result is the transformation of an already fine book into something spectacular.
