Overview

There can be no more enduring and instantly recognizable symbols of the Alps than the Eiger and the Matterhorn. These two great mountains have inspired climbers throughout Europe and further afield while the villages of Grindelwald and Zermatt; nestling beneath their peaks have become world famous resorts. "A Long Walk in the Alps" recounts a journey that begins under the shadow of the Eiger's infamous north wall and finishes in the high meadows beneath the soaring ridges of the Matterhorn. The trail from Grindelwald leads firstly through the idyllic Jungfrau Region before heading off through high passes, forgotten valleys and sleepy alpine villages on the way to its destination in Zermatt.

Meet the Author

Hello and welcome to my Smashwords homepage. I'm Pete Buckley and I'm the UK based indie author of "The Colonel of Krasnoyarsk" a high speed adventure thriller in which the reader is introduced to Russian Agent Colonel Yuri Medev as well as to Jim Bergman of the FBI and Juli Regan; a young dance student from New York City. I am currently working on the next Yuri Medev adventure; provisionally titled "The Kirov Conspiracy" due for release early in 2015, while previously I wrote a couple of travel stories about various wonderful places such as New Zealand and the Swiss Alps. Aside from writing, travel has always been a big inspiration with hiking, biking and the outdoors taking up much of my time when I'm not looking after the kids. Thanks for visiting. Pete Buckley November 2014
