'This little book is firmly aimed at the recreational walker who ventures onto the fells and needs to know how to make his or her journey a little safer. Having said that, there are enough insights to benefit even trained fellwalkers, such as those holding Mountain Leader or Walking Group Leader awards. This book represents a good use of a tenner. Recommended.' Bob Smith. grough.co.uk
