About this book

With names like Snowdon, Ben Nevis or Scarfell Pike, Britain's high places are at once romantic and rooted in the nation's sense of identity. In Mountain, Griff Rhys Jones brings their stories to life.

Travelling the length of the UK by journeying across the rooftops of Britain, Griff Rhys Jones explors some of the most arduous and roughest mountain landscapes. It is a journey that takes him from the remotest areas of Northern Scotland to the wilds of Dartmoor in the South West, and to some of the country's most beautiful, rugged and fascinating locations.

While he experiences the flora, fauna, dramatic landscape and stunning seasonal shifts, Griff meets the undiscovered mountain communities and the real people who inhabit Britain's highlands: shepherds, mountain rescue teams, scientists, farmers and artists – the people who can deliver a real understanding and passion for the raw, natural beauty that has fascinated for centuries. He also brings to life the history of epic battles, communities long gone and heroic struggles for survival.

Accompanies the BBC series.
