Alfred Wainwright s walking guides to the Lake District have been treasured by generations of walkers. This Anniversary edition for collectors has been beautifully reproduced exactly as it was published over 60 years ago and includes all of Wainwright s hand-drawn maps and illustrations. The Far Eastern Fells of Lakeland rise to the east of Kirkstone Pass and the Patterdale valley. To the north and south they run down towards low country, and eastwards they merge into the high ground of the Pennines. Many of the heights are relatively inaccessible and lonely, but the scenery here and the excellence of the walks rank, in Wainwright's view, with the Lake District s best.
