Wainwright's legacy to the fell walkers of the Lake District will be as popular in a hundred years from now as it is today, a decade after his demise. These seven wonderful books began in the 1950's as a labour of love which would take up most of Wainwright's leisure time over a period of over 12 years. He embarked on this venture without a thought of making a profit; the idea was simply to provide meticulous advice and information for walkers, set out in his own unique style. His attention to detail and gentle humour have reassured and entertained generations of walkers visiting this hallowed corner of our beautiful earth. Similarly people who are not fit enough to visit the highest mountains can relive past adventures by their own fireside on a cold winter's evening. So, my friend, feel inspired, splash out a little on these wonderful guidebooks, get out on the hills, and, as the great Wainwright himself said, watch where you are putting your feet. Your life will never be quite the same again.
