Joss: The Life and Times of the Legendary Lake District Fell Runner and Shepherd Joss Naylor

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Olympic Gold medal winner Chris Brasher described Joss Naylor as 'The Greatest of Them All', a title he bestowed on Joss when he ran 72 Lake District mountains in 24 hours.
Joss Naylor's pedigree as a fell runner is undeniable but there is much more to the man. In addition to his considerable exploits in the world of running, this biography brings to the fore other areas of Joss's remarkable story...including his hard childhood and upbringing on a Lakeland hill farm in the wilds of the Wasdale Valley; the crippling back injury he suffered as a boy, an injury that has plagued him all his life and has given him an incredible pain threshold.
Here also is Joss the shepherd, the family man who loves his environment with a passion and who holds strong opinions on the Lake District of the 21st century.
The book takes you into Joss's world. Chapters are devoted to Joss and his working dogs, to the time he spends in Spain and to the tradition of dry stonewalling which he has transformed into an art form.
As well as containing evocative black and white photographs from Joss's childhood and his early days as a runner, this book also has spectacular colour photography of Joss and the Lakeland mountains taken by Val Corbett, the widely respected Lake District photographer of landscapes and gardens.
