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, capturing the wild spirit of the Irish mountains in rich text and glorious pictures. Adrian has visited all of Irelands High Places and his personal travel tales combine with meticulous research on history, geology and folklore to paint a fascinating picture of mountain after mountain. The pictures are big and bold giving a real feel for the texture, colour, size and variety of Irelands mountains - you are drawn into the book in an almost Narnian way.
The chapters look at the different mountain areas of Ireland and is a joy to start at the beginning and follow to the end or to quickly flick through before settling on a favourite mountain area.
A welcome addition to the numerous drab guidebooks detailing walks through the Irish hills - this will bring many of those other books to life!
