This beautiful book is a must for any one who loves to lose themselves in the Fells. The writing awoke all of my senses and transported me back to the Lakeland fells that I had not visited for many a year. The blend of poetry and prose made me think of the variety of terrain that one would experience on the Gerry Charnley Round whilst Heather Dawe's art is something that I could lose myself in again and again. In particular, her description of looking at a map and seeing the two-dimensional contours form 3-dimensional hills in her mind, exactly described my own experiences. It is a book that I will treasure and read and re-read until, one day I hope, I will be able to return to the Lakes and try this route for myself.
