'The book will be invaluable to those visiting the area for the first time and wanting a one, two or more centre walking holiday, rather than moving on day by day along a long distance trail. The work is of the usual high standard now expected of Britain's most prolific guidebook writer to the Alps. There is plenty of information about the area and the book is well illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs, which demonstrate the beauty of this superb region of the French Alps.' (Alan Castle, Strider) 'This guide covers the five main valleys of the Ecrins ... and describes 70 of the best walks in the region...aimed not only at the experienced Alpine walker, but also at the active hill-walker visiting the Alps for the first time.'
