A Lifetime Of Mountains The Best Of A.Harry Griffin'S 'Country Diary'

Taal: Engels

Samenvatting

A collection of the best Guardian columns by a much-loved writer spanning 52 years; a touching and wide-ranging chronicle of the life of the Lake District; appeal to both the outdoor and the nostalgia market; published in the same collectable small hardback format as Aurum's highly successful Byron Rogers collections like An Audience with an Elephant ; major promotion in the pages of the Guardian ; Martin Wainwright keen to promote the book through talks and signings. Second only to Allstair Cooke's Letter from America , Harry Griffin's 'Country Diary' column for the Guardian was the longest-running regular feature in the British media, running uninterrupted for some 52 years until his death in 2004. Consequently, a collection of the best of these columns is both a moving and remarkable digest of one man's long and varied life and a matchless chronicle of a landscape and a community - the English Lake District - over the decades. Harry Griffin was an outdoor man: a climber, a walker, a wanderer, and this book will appeal to anyone who loves the wild parts of the British landscape. Also it is a fascinating social history of rural life, vanished and present, from solitary hill shepherds to slate miners, mountain hares to mountain hares to mountain rescue teams. And it is an insight into the mind of a man who loved the mountains and hills and their remote beauty, but also wanted people to live among them. Martin Wainwright, who knew Griffin well, has selected 150 of his best.
