Ralph Storer - The Joy of Hillwalking (2nd Hand Paperback)

£4.70
SKU B002302
Synopsis

Ralph Storer's highly entertaining exploration of the lure of the hills is underpinned by hard-won experience - he has climbed extensively in the British Isles, Europe and the American West, though his abiding love is the Scottish Highlands.

His breezy anecdotes of walking and climbing around the world in all sorts of conditions are gripping and full of fun.

This man has done more things in a sleeping bag than sleep, and in The Joy of Hillwalking he cheerfully tells all. His sense of humour is as irrepressible as his relish for adventurous ascents, but he doesn't have his head in the clouds when it comes to serious issues such as public access and conservation.

External Reviews

'A light hearted and often highly amusing guide to the pleasures of the great outdoors.' - The Scots Magazine.

'A treat for all hillwalkers active or chairbound' - Scots Independent.

'Having read and enjoyed Storer's previous books, it was a pleasure to receive a review copy of his latest work. A pleasure, and not a disappointment. Storer sets out to detail his modus walkaroundi in an interesting, none-too-serious round of seasons, summits, sex, etc.' - The Angry Corrie.

'It is an entertaining study of one man's relationship with the hills enlivened by a lifetime of experience and a propensity for getting into trouble.' - Amazon Review.
