Biographie de l'auteur :

Born in Blackburn in 1907, Alfred Wainwright left school at the age of 13. A holiday at the age of 23 kindled a life-long love affair with the Lake District. Following a move to Kendal in 1941 he began to devote every spare moment he had to researching and compiling the original seven Pictorial Guides. He described these as his 'love letters' to the Lakeland Fells and at the end of the first, The Eastern Fells, he wrote about what the mountains had come to mean to him:

"I suppose it might be said, to add impressiveness to the whole thing, that this book has been twenty years in the making, for it is so long, and more, since I first came from a smoky mill-town (forgive me, Blackburn!) and beheld, from Orrest Head, a scene of great beauty, a fascinating paradise, Lakeland's mountains and trees and water. That was the first time I had looked upon beauty, or imagined it, even.

Afterwards I went often, whenever I could, and always my eyes were lifted to the hills. I was to find then, and it has been so ever since, a spiritual and physical satisfaction in climbing mountains and a tranquil mind upon reaching their summits, as though I had escaped from the disappointments and unkindnesses of life and emerged above them into a new world, a better world.

In due course I came to live within sight of the hills, and I was well content. If I could not be climbing, I was happy to sit idly and dream of them, serenely. Then came a restlessness and the feeling that it was not enough to take their gifts and do nothing in return. I must dedicate something of myself, the best part of me, to them. I started to write about them, and to draw pictures of them. Doing these things, I found they were still giving and I still receiving, for a great pleasure filled me when I was so engaged I had found a new way of escape to them and from all else less worth while.

Thus it comes about that I have written this book. Not for material gain, welcome though that would be (you see I have not escaped entirely!); not for the benefit of my contemporaries, though if it brings them also to the hills I shall be well pleased; certainly not for posterity, about which I can work up no enthusiasm at all. No, this book has been written, carefully and with infinite patience, for my own pleasure and because it has seemed to bring the hills to my own fireside. If it has merit, it is because the hills have merit."

A. Wainwright died in 1991 at the age of 84.



Chris Jesty trained as a cartographer with the Ordnance Survey. He devised Scafell Pike Panorama, a guide to the view from the highest mountain in England, for which Wainwright provided illustrations. When Wainwright's health deteriorated, Chris helped him with the maps for two of his large-format books. Shortly before he died, Wainwright said that if ever the Pictorial Guides were to be revised, Chris Jesty should be given the job. He lives in Kendal.

Revue de presse :



Wainwright would certainly have approved of this reworking. --(Cumbria )

There will be hundreds of books published in the next two weeks in preparation for Christmas, but if you want one that you know will well received by any walker on this side of the Lake District then it's this one. Whitehaven News Wainwright would certainly have approved of this reworking. Cumbria In view of the large number of amendments to this revised edition of Book 7, I feel that even if [Wainwright Society] members have the original guide, it makes practical sense to purchase the revised version if only for the number of route changes. For a modest outlay, walkers can have the most up-to-date guide to the western fells. --Footsteps

Description du livre Frances Lincoln Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. État : New. 2nd Revised edition. 170 x 112 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Western Fells lie within a wide sector, driving deep into the heart of Lakeland at Sty Head. They are bounded in the north-west by the Cocker valley, jewelled by the lovely lakes of Buttermere and Crummock Water . South-west their boundary is Wasdale, running towards the sea. The rugged territory around Sty Head is crowded with fine peaks: the hoary old favourite, Great Gable, the magnificent Pillar, the fascinating Haystacks and the exhilarating spine of the High Stile ridge. Further west the slopes are smooth and rounded, declining into grassy foothills and rolling sheep pastures - terrrain described by Wainwright as splendid walking country, but comparatively unexciting and unfrequented. This second edition of The Western Fells has been brilliantly revised by Chris Jesty, a trained cartographer who worked with Wainwright on some of the maps in his later large-format guides. All footpaths have been rewalked, all routes checked, all maps and text updated. Paths and routes are picked out in red to make them easier to follow, and parking information is included. This new edition of the classic walking guide is Wainwright for the 21st century. N° de réf. du libraire AA29780711221994
