Snowdonia is one of Britain's great mountain regions. Formed by ice and fire, these 'alps' of North Wales soar to a serrated skyline of rocky pyramids and ridges. Climbers have come here since the days of the early pioneers, but this is fine walking country too. John Gillham, who created the critically-acclaimed and comprehensive four-volume Pictorial Guides to the Mountains of Snowdonia for Frances Lincoln, has this time turned his attention to circular walks, suitable for families. Each of the 30 walks in the book has been graded from 1 to 5 for both technical difficulty and strenuousness. None of the walks contains any difficult or exposed scrambling, and the itineraries range from an easy-paced walk on the foothills above Bala to a steep rocky assault on Tryfan. By starting on the easier routes and working up through the grades, the book provides a good introduction for families and newcomers to mountain walking. Equally there are enough splendid outings in high mountain scenery to satisfy the most enthusiastic mountain lover.

This guidebook describes 40 day walks exploring Snowdonia. It showcases some of the best mountain walks in the area, with routes up Snowdon and Tryfan alongside other classic peaks like Y Garn, Cadair Idris and the Glyders. Routes are graded easy to strenuous and include airy and pulse-quickening scrambles such as Crib Goch and Bristly Ridge as well as the Snowdon Horseshoe, the Nantlle Ridge and a 2-day traverse of all 15 of Snowdon's peaks over 3000ft. Walks range in distance from 4 miles (6km) to 16 miles (26km). Clear route descriptions are accompanied by OS mapping, and for each walk there is key information about distance, grade, ascent, terrain, access and parking. With useful advice on where to stay and when to go, and an English-Welsh glossary, this book is an invaluable guide to discovering both the popular and less well-trodden corners of Snowdonia. Snowdonia can justifiably lay claim to some of the finest mountain walking in Britain, from the bristling, jagged ridges of Snowdon to the huge grassy mounds of the Carneddau and the stone-girt fortresses of the Glyderau. These are big mountains with big personalities, with glowering crags and deep rocky cwms. Whether you are based in Bala, Beddgelert, Llanberis, Betws-y-Coed, Dolgellau or Capel Curig, you'll find walks in this guidebook to suit you.

Hot on the success of Wilderness Weekends, one of the top selling guides in 2015, award-winning travel writer Phoebe Smith returns with more great outdoor experiences tailored not just for the hard-core wilderness enthusiast but for novices and newbie hillwalkers alike. Take a friend, or take the kids - or both! - and climb one of Phoebe's favourite hills. There are 60 of them detailed in this easy-to-follow guide which champions a new easy-access approach to hillwalking. With 20 hills each in England, Wales and Scotland, from just 120 metres to a manageable 609 metres, and from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands, there's bound to be a hill for you. 'When it comes to mountains society seems to be obsessed with height' says Phoebe Smith. 'But those who shun peaks based on measurement are truly missing out. Following on from the success of Wilderness Weekends, people are always asking me where they can take a friend, partner or young child that will help convince them that the outdoors - and hills - are worth the effort. Answering that need is this book, it's all about minimum effort for maximum results.' Each walk also includes tips on safety, kit, weather, walking responsibly, maps, tackling hills sensibly, and taking children, friends and reluctant walkers.

Primera parte de la trilogía sobre el encanto de la vida alternativa que vive Chris Stewart en la Alpujarra granadina. El primer libro autobiográfico de Chris Stewart, Entre limones, es el divertidísimo relato de un joven inglés que, con tal de no vestir traje y trabajar en una oficina, se gastó todos sus ahorros en la compra de un ruinoso cortijo en la Alpujarra granadina. Publicado en 1999 por una pequeña editorial inglesa, se convirtió en un fenómeno editorial, hasta el punto de que, junto con los dos volúmenes siguientes -El loro en el limonero y Los almendros en flor-, han deleitado a más de dos millones de lectores. Entre limones es un caso singular: un libro divertido, rebosante de observaciones agudas y reveladoras, que mezcla la mirada curiosa del viajero con cierta visión idealista de las cosas y una fuerza de voluntad inasequible al desaliento. Chris desgrana las numerosas vivencias que le depara su existencia diaria desde que, tras su llegada a la Alpujarra, inicia la aventura que cambiará su vida, rodeado de una sorprendente galería de lugareños, pastores, expatriados y viajeros New Age. Sin embargo, quizá el verdadero protagonista de esta historia sea el decrépito cortijo «El Valero», encaramado en una colina, rodeado de olivos, almendros y limoneros, situado en el margen malo de un río, sin carretera de acceso, sin agua ni electricidad... ¿Acaso puede ofrecer la vida algo mejor? La crítica ha dicho... «Un canto humorístico a la trascendencia de las cosas pequeñas [...] un libro divertido que encanta desde la primera página.» Sergio Vila-Sanjuán, La Vanguardia «Stewart tiene un talento especial para captar los diálogos, una curiosidad insaciable, un optimismo contagioso y un plácido sentido del humor.» Moncho Alpuente, Babelia «Una experiencia singular que nos atrapa desde los primeros compases de lectura y nostransmite un universo de paz.» Diari de Terrassa «Impregnado de sutil humor inglés con el que describe en primera persona el desembarco de un inglés cosmopolita en la España rural.» Miguel Artaza, El Correo
