Walking in the countryside

£5.99

Product description

"This book is the result of collaboration between four officers of the Ramblers' Association. It describes paths in various parts of the country, explains why they came to be there, and how they have been surveyed and recorded. There is lots of sensible advice on what to wear and which maps to buy, and a chapter explaining how to read a map and use a compass. Hill country areas, favourite lowland rambling areas and long-distance walking routes are described, with suggestions on walks to take and centres to stay at. Wildlife, geology and landscape history are among the many related topics introduced to stimulate enjoyment of our natural resources, so that the whole family can participate and even the youngest child is encouraged to discover the pleasures of a footpath walk. The complete walking book to enable everyone to enjoy the countryside to the full. Illustrated" (London Bookworm). Dust jacket worn. Corners bumped.
