Stills from the original series are augmented by the famous line drawings from Wainwright's original books and evocative landscape photography by Derry Brabbs; his double-page photographs at the start of each chapter are truly stunning! Julia treats us to a 'behind the camera' personal view of the making of this successful and very popular T.V. series. I enjoyed reading her 'overview' at the beginnning of each chapter in which her sensitivity to what she sees in such beautiful landscapes, along with her response to it, is well expressed in her warm and competent writing style. A lovely book( Keswick Reminder)
'The Countryfile star picks her 10 favourite routes ... it does give very detailed descriptions, which can be used to plot a course yourself - equally it's a great one for armchair walkers happy to enjoy the sights and sounds of the hills from the comfort of their own home'( Wanderlust)
'In her book, peppered with pub recommendations, anecdotes and pictures of misty peaks and craggy contours, Julia Bradbury pays tribute to Wainwright'( Lonely Planet)
'a thorough guide for beginner walkers and experts alike, with Julia's first-hand experiences, factual information and important tips.'( LandLove) L'autore:
