Guidebook to 40 circular walks in Pembrokeshire in Wales. The routes, which range from 1 to 12 miles, take in the dramatic beauty of the national park and its coast, the Daugleddau and the Preseli Hills, while exploring wooded gorges, prehistoric hillforts and medieval castles. Step-by-step route descriptions are accompanied by 1:50,000 mapping. For each route, information is also given regarding parking and public transport options, as well as toilets and refreshments available along the way. The guide also includes a useful route summary table, plus information on tides, the terrain, and weather in the region. This collection of walks includes something for everyone, from novices to experienced ramblers. None of the walks demand technical skill and, in good weather, pose few navigational problems. Whether following the coast, wandering the hills or exploring the valleys and woods, the walking everywhere is superb and will invariably reveal something unexpected along the way.

Most kids make a pact with themselves to return at some point to a project or idea in later life. This for me was to complete the walk on the coastal path that completely envelopes the county of Pembrokeshire and, in doing so, to create a written and visual record of that journey. The history and mythology that engulf this little peninsular jutting out into the Irish Sea have always fascinated me, and I consider myself fortunate to be able to share the tale with you.

Although deep in South Wales, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire have a strong English influence, but their most striking feature, from the point of view of the walker, is that they contain some of the most spectacular coastal scenery and finest stretches of coast path in Britain. Although the walks in this guide inevitably concentrate on the coast, especially using the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, their characters vary considerably, ranging from the splendid cliff scenery around the peninsula of Dinas Island and to the west of Port-Eynon Bay, to the wooded stretches between Saundersfoot and Tenby. Inland, and by way of contrast, the Preseli hills offer a splendid ridge walk.

A guidebook to the rich mix of summer scrambling, rock climbing and winter mountaineering on Scotland's ridges, from the remote Cairngorms to the splendour of the Cuillin. Graceful carved walkways slung between summits, twisted spines of stone - ridges can be the most beautiful of mountain landforms. With elegant lines and giddy exposure, ridge climbs emit a powerful siren call, drawing us out onto the rocks. Life on the edge has a special quality, born of the contrast of empty space all around, and intricate detail in close-up. The crests are strangely irresistible. Scotland's ridges are among the finest mountaineering lines in the country, every one a unique adventure. The variety of these routes reflects the breadth of the mountain experience: a rich mix of summer scrambles, technical rock and challenging winter climbs. This book covers both the popular classics and some obscure gems, aiming to celebrate these thrilling climbs as much as to document them. Along the way it explores landscapes of magnificent diversity, ranging from the remote desolation of the Cairngorms to the seaside splendour of the Cuillin, the great trench of Glencoe to the surreal exhibitionism of the far north. The chosen selection spans the grade range, with routes to suit all levels of ability. Whether an earthbound hillwalker or an accomplished climber, Scotland's ridges cannot fail to stir your imagination.

Unjustifiable Risk

To the impartial observer Britain does not appear to have any mountains. Yet the British invented the sport of mountain climbing and for two periods in history British climbers led the world in the pursuit of this beautiful and dangerous obsession. Unjustifiable Risk is the story of the social, economic and cultural conditions that gave rise to the sport, and the achievements and motives of the scientists and poets, parsons and anarchists, villains and judges, ascetics and drunks that have shaped its development over the past two hundred years. The history of climbing inevitably reflects the wider changes that have occurred in British society, including class, gender, nationalism and war, but the sport has also contributed to changing social attitudes to nature and beauty, heroism and death. Over the years, increasing wealth, leisure and mobility have gradually transformed climbing from an activity undertaken by an eccentric and privileged minority into a sub-division of the leisure and tourist industry, while competition, improved technology and information, and increasing specialisation have helped to create climbs of unimaginable difficulty at the leading edge of the sport. But while much has changed, even more has remained the same. Today's climbers would be instantly recognisable to their Victorian predecessors, with their desire to escape from the crowded complexity of urban society and willingness to take "unjustifiable" risk in pursuit of beauty, adventure and self-fulfilment. Unjustifiable Risk was shortlisted for the Boardman Tasker prize in 2011.

The book is an autobiography of my life and covers it all from day one, with my unexpected and untimely arrival, to my finish now and all that went on between in my days before school, my days at school, my time in the British Army and the time in the Kent Fire and Rescue Service and the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service. I have put into the book things that I think people will find amusing, and also interesting and informative, and lastly of all the things that I think could make people cry. The book is not entirely about things that happed to me during my time while in the Fire Service. I have also taken part in other events that have gone on outside the working environment and having kept a diary during these events which has enabled me to write an accurate and hopefully amusing account of these times. Obviously I have not tried to be amusing or funny when someone has been injured or killed as I think this would not be right or proper. I hope you enjoy reading my book as much as I did when writing it.
