Description - The Far Eastern Fells (Anniversary Edition) by Alfred Wainwright
The Far Eastern Fells of Lakeland rise to the east of Kirkstone Pass and the Patterdale valley. To the north and south they run down towards low country, and eastwards they merge into the high ground of the Pennines. Many of the heights are relatively inaccessible and lonely, but the scenery here and the excellence of the walks rank, in Wainwright's view, with the Lake Disctrict's best. The Pictorial Guides by A. Wainwright, written half a century ago, have been treasured by generations of walkers. This edition of The Far Eastern Fells is freshly reproduced from Wainwright's original hand-drawn pages.

Author Biography - Alfred Wainwright
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 time for thirteen years 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 were sold to Frances Lincoln in 2003, and the printing of the Pictorial Guides was returned to their original location in Kendal.
