These memoirs of the great fellwalker Alfred Wainwright, author of the Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells and many other volumes of walking guides and sketchbooks, are full of his thoughts on life and on his experiences on the fells. Wainwright writes about his boyhood in Blackburn, his work and interests as a young man, and the visit to the Lake District at the age of 23 which kindled in him a lasting passion for the fells. He reveals how he set about researching and compiling the Pictorial Guides, the labour of love which occupied so many years of his life. For walkers and other lovers of the Lakeland fells, this is a great read.
Born in Blackburn in 1907, Alfred Wainwright left school at the age of 13. A holiday at the age of 23 kindled a life long love affair with the Lake District. Following a move to Kendal in 1941 Wainwright devoted every spare minute of his days to researching and compiling the original seven Pictorial guides. Following Wainwright's death in 1991, Michael Joseph bought the complete list including the later guidebooks and numerous sketchbooks. The rights have now been sold to Frances Lincoln, and the printing of the books has been moved to their original location in Kendal.
