Overview

Tales From the Hills is a collection of stories from the author's travels in Europe's mountain and wilderness areas including the Alps and Norway as well as closer to home outings in the Lake District, Snowdonia and the Scottish Highlands. The easy to follow and often humourous narrative takes the reader on the road less travelled to Alpine glaciers, Lakeland tarns and the wilds of Scotland. On the way we encounter Dutch caravanners on the mountain roads of Norway, part time peak baggers in the Lake District and a walker in Wales who is so lost he has climbed the wrong mountain. This will appeal to anyone who has a love for walking and the outdoors as well as those who enjoy a good travellers tale.
