Description - Southern Fells by Alfred Wainwright

The Southern Fells include the highest, roughest, grandest fells in Lakeland including the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike. Wainwright - a fell-walking legend in his own lifetime - knew the terrain and conveyed its grandeur and beauty like nobody else. In this unique Pictorial Guide, he writes of the glorious curves and simple grandeur of Great Langdale; of Wasdale, 'an emerald amongst sombre hills'; of enchanting Borrowdale; of the sparkling radiance of the Duddon; and of the most delectable valley of all - Eskdale, 'sanctuary of peace and solitude'. The Pictorial Guides by A. Wainwright, written half a century ago, have been treasured by generations of walkers. This edition of The Southern 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.
