Product Description

About the Author

Born in the Blackmoor Vale of Dorset on 1914, Eric Hemery trained as a musician. In intervals between his musical commitments, he studied, explored and guided on Dartmoor. On retirement as a teacher, he switched professionals and became Dartmoor's foremost writer and lecturer. He is the author of the definitive High Dartmoor: Land and People ('the standard work', Daily Telegraph) and until his death in early 1986 was the acknowledged world authority on Dartmoor. He is buried in the churchyard of Meavy, the church where he and his family regularly worshipped.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 13 Mar 2002
Format: Hardcover
This book is great on history and detail (at times even supplying the names of those from whom permission should be sought for non-rights of way) but the drawback is that the routes are one-way, i.e. they can be walked in either direction but do not return to starting point (although walkers could perhaps double back).
Also the routes are mostly over 15 miles so may need an overnight stay en route (which might prove an attraction for some).
So definitely a guidebook for history and scenery hungry trekkers rather than for motorists looking for family walks.
Having said that, the book is quite readable by itself - so good for armchair ramblers (or those inflicted with blisters from the previous day!)

Format: Hardcover
This together with the definitive Dartmoor book (Crossings Guide to Dartmoor) and of course the OS Map have provided me with about as much information as I will ever need to plan walks & backpacking expiditions on Dartmoor.
I cannot rated this too highly
