About the Author
Helen Moat was born in Northern Ireland and spent her childhood travelling the length and breadth of the island in her Dad's Morris Minor. She studied German in England, living in Switzerland and Germany for extended periods, and has since settled in the Peak District, her adopted home. She is constantly inspired by the local landscape, and the people and places shaped by the Peaks. A keen walker and cyclist, she's happiest when outdoors and on the move. As a travel and fiction writer, she's always on the hunt for a good story. The Peak District gives her plenty of material.

So I am relieved and delighted to say that I thought it was a good guide book and an enjoyable read (the two don't automatically go together) Unlike another charming local book read recently, it is feasible to take this out and about with you as a guide, although you'd need an OS map too. I was surprised by the quality of the writing, not easy to achieve in what should be (and is) a pretty fact -dense work. Helen Moat describes the *experience* of visiting some of the places, as well as providing the descriptions, snippets of history, places to stay and eat and walks you'd expect. It is not a coffee table book but I was impressed with the choice of photographic images... not the standard fare.
Someone using this book really could expect to delve deeper into the experience of visiting the Peak District. It doesn't slavishly and snootily avoid the honeypots in the cause of the Slow Travel theme but presents a much wider and richer selection as befits the aim of being as much as doing.
