High Praise for High Places,
This review is from: From High Places: A Journey through Ireland's Great Mountain (Paperback)
This is a beautiful book. It is not a route guide. There are no detailed maps or co-ordinates for your GPS. What it offers is a collection of very fine mountain photographs. It also includes some top class writing. This is a wonderful book for a dark winters evening, the sort of evening shortened by the memory of great days on the hills. I live in Ireland and have climbed in about half of the areas described by the author. I'm itching to start climbing in the others. The book would make a fine gift for any hillwalker or mountaineer.
