Mountain - Exploring Britain's High Places

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

With names like Snowdon, Ben Nevis or Scafell Pike, Britain's high places are at once romantic and rooted in the nation's sense of identity. In Mountains, Griff Rhys Jones brings their stories to life. Travelling the length of the UK by journeying across the rooftops of Britain, Griff Rhys Jones will be exploring some of the most arduous and roughest mountain landscapes. It is a journey that will take him from the remotest areas of Northern Scotland to wilds of Dartmoor in the South West, and to some of the countries most beautiful, rugged and fascinating locations.While he experiences the flora, fauna, dramatic landscape and stunning seasonal shifts, Griff will be meeting the undiscovered mountain communities and the real people who inhabit Britain's highlands: shepherds, mountain rescue teams, scientists, farmers and artists - the people who can deliver a real understanding and passion for the raw, natural beauty that has fascinated for centuries. He will also be bringing to life the history of epic battles, communities long gone and heroic struggles for survival.A lavish, fully illustrated book full of stunning imagery - drawn from the magic BBC series of the same name - this is a labour of love, a personal journey of discovery and a lasting testament to some of the most exciting, unique and treasured parts of Britain.
