Walking in the Alps. By Kev Reynolds. Cicerone Press.
Half a century has gone by since J. Hubert Walker published his classic Walking in the Alps, now a collector's item. The mountains
have seen many changes since then. Dams have been built, roads improved, an almost endless catalogue, even though the beauty of the
region remains and its attraction undiminished. This new book takes all this into account. Each alpine area is comprehensively described
with suggestions for walks which will stimulate the imagination. Details of useful guidebooks and maps are given.
"Like its namesake this book sets out to describe some of the loveliest Alpine regions from the
point of view of the walker who is, after all, in the most favored position to witness and enjoy mountain scenery in all its abundant
variety. Only the mountain walker, the individual with good general fitness, a modicum of scrambling experience and an eye for the hills,
can move far enough and at the right pace to enjoy the full range of wonders the the Alps so generously offer. This is the person for
whom this book is written." -A note from Kev Reynolds.
Illustrated with 40 color photographs, 20 black and white, and numerous maps.
