Snowdon - Yr Wyddfa - is the highest, most impressive and most popular peak in Wales. This book is intended as a guide to everything connected with the Snowdon massif, from its creation millions of years ago to the best routes to the summit. The author's passion for Snowdon encompasses its geology, flora and fauna, industry, place names, famous climbs, poetry and myths - everything which makes up its grand atmosphere. The book is also a guide to what might happen in the future if we do not look after this unique habitat. The mountain draws some 500,000 visitors to its summit each year. Some arrive there the easy way - by train - and Jones gives a fascinating picture of the trials and tribulations of those who brought the Snowdon railway into being. Walkers will use one or other of the stunning, occasionally scary, walking tracks, which are all described in great detail. Modern visitors cannot find Snowdon as it was, with its industries, its old forests and its eagles, but this book provides a flavour of what they might have experienced, even just a hundred years ago, as well as an indepth commentary on the mountain's present day attractions.
