Media reviews

This is an esoteric but interesting guide to vast stretches of the Himalayas. While not exhaustive, it comes at places that have been written about ad infinitum from left field. It proves there are always new ways of looking at the same thing. Sunday Telegraph 'The book is a good read which carries lightly its formidable research. The writing style is lucid, indeed rather racy and even colloquial in parts...which means that the considerable detail can be absorbed with ease. It is an extremely well-produced volume with excellent appendices and some wonderful coloured photographs.' Richard Hughes, The James Hilton Newsletter
