About this book

The fruit of a quarter of a century of walking, reading and thinking about the unique mountain playground of the Lake District, this book provides surprises for even the most ardent lover of the Lakes.

Familiar with it in all weathers and all seasons, the author Steve Goodier describes his passion for fell-walking, explores little-known routes that will tempt and surprise even those who think they know the fells well, and uncovers some Lakeland oddities. He also reflects on favourite but generally disregarded mountains and finally discusses some of the writers who have shared his love of the Lakes.
