Product Name Memoirs of a Fellwanderer - Book
Product Description Memoirs of a Fellwanderer is a delightful and at times revealing memoir of A Wainwright, the man who uniquely mapped the landscape of the Lake District. It was his unalterable love of the fells, the desire to escape from office life, and his longstanding fascination with maps that caused him, on the evening of 9 November 1952, to pen the first page of his seven Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells a single act that was to lead to his becoming a household name, the mountains and valleys of the Lake District becoming a mecca for thousands of walkers every year, and a happy home being found for countless stray cats and dogs.
