'From High Places' sets high standards, 3 Jan. 2011
Anyone expecting a walking guide to the high mountains of Ireland will be sorely disappointed. This is no mere route guide with grid references and descriptions of the terrain etc. This is a photographic celebration of the magic of the high places of the emerald isle from the Glens of Antrim to the Beara Penisula and virtually everything else in between. Superb photography, coupled with Hendroff's meticulous research into the history and culture of each mountainous area he covers, makes 'From High Places' a must have not only for those who love hiking the hills and mountains of Ireland but anyone who appreciates the magnificent scenery of the place, mountains and views that even the IMF and the banks can't diminish.
