Further reading...

My last blog on ‘essential’ reading for those leading others in the mountains was very well received, thank you. This time I’m going to take you to the next level. The criteria remain, beautifully written books which are eminently readable by all. Not textbooks, but books which will inform and inspire about nature. Books that can be read cover to cover and then dipped into later, as the mood takes. There are so many nature books around at the moment and most have them have something to offer. You may have some different favourites from me and some of my preferred ones, I considered a little esoteric to recommend whole heartedly. So here goes, your next most important, easy to read, unmissable, glorious nuggets of nature passion. Written so much better than wot I could do!!

I have to start with this year’s Wainwright Prize
