The 1033 High Hills of Britain


This unique book will provide inspiration, entertainment and
enlightenment as well as top-quality, up-to-date information
derived from extensive research. Keen hill walkers will appreciate the accuracy of the summit heights and locations, while the stories that describe the process of climbing and surveying the summits will appeal to anyone with an interest in the hills.

The book does not tell you where to park, what to wear or how to walk. Instead it captures how it feels to escape to another world and walk above the clouds for hours at a time, to fight through terrible terrain in the dark, and to wait around for hours in freezing weather with only thoughts for company while collecting satellite data. The tales are not of battles, myths and princes but of inspiration and desperation, magic and misery, zen and flow, meaning and motivation, all while striving to obtain the survey data that provides the purpose and structure for the book.

The spirit of adventure, discovery and freedom that runs through the book leads to the comprehensive cataloguing of hundreds of hills that few people have ever climbed because they have not previously been identified and tabulated. The mixture of scientific research and original writing in an attractive and convenient A5 format will appeal to hill walkers of all ages and abilities.
