About this book

Walks in the lovely Italian part of Switzerland, surprisingly little known to British walkers.

'Ticino is the eastern region of Switzerland near the Italian border, little known by the British yet readily accessible from Locarno. Kev Reynolds writes with such affection and infectious enthusiasm for this most tranquil of Alpine regions, with its granite peaks, wooded valleys and lost villages, that readers will be unable to resist planning a visit at the next opportunity.'(High)

Biography

A lifelong passion for the countryside in general, and mountains in particular, drives Kev's desire to share his sense of wonder and delight in the natural world through his writing, guiding, photography and lecturing. Spending several months each year among various high mountain regions researching guidebooks, makes him The Man with the World's Best Job; a title he aims to keep by remaining active for another 100 years at least. Kev has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Cicerone since the 1970s, producing walking and trekking guides to the Pyrenees, Alps and Himalaya, as well as walking guides for Kent, Sussex and the Cotswolds and he has several more books in the pipeline. A frequent contributor to outdoor magazines, he also writes and illustrates brochures for national tourist authorities and travel companies. When not away in the mountains, Kev lives with his wife in a small cottage among what he calls 'the Kentish Alps' with unrestricted walking country on the doorstep. But he also travels throughout Britain during the winter months to share his love of the places he writes about through a series of lectures. Check him out on www.kevreynolds.co.uk
