The Wainwright Summits in Pictures

The Wainwright Summits in Pictures
by
Alan Berkeley Thomas
Having spent the last twelve years or so climbing the English Lake District's 214 Wainwrights, I decided to put together a book of my photographs of the summits as a personal memento. Having completed the book, I thought this might be of interest to other hillwalkers. The result is The Wainwright Summits in Pictures - featuring two full-colour images of each and every one of the 214 summit cairns (where present) and surroundings, over 430 images in total.
242 pages, A5, full colour. Available from Amazon Books where you can 'look inside'.
