After a long career in education, information technology and academic publishing, Jacquetta became interested in long-distance walking and trekking. After completing the West Highland Way, her first long walk, in 1998 she progressed to Mount Kilimanjaro, which she has since summited four times by different routes. She is a member of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild and in 2016 won its Award for Excellence (jointly with Max Landsberg) for their jointly authored guidebook Trek to Everest.
Rucksack Readers is a specialist guidebook publisher with a very creditable range of products. These include four guides to Irish long-distance walks, one of which is the Dingle Way, which I used myself some years ago, and found to be one of the best walking guides I had ever handled.-- Margaret Tees * Irish Mountain Log, Summer 2014, page 51 *
The detail in this book convinced us that we could actually go do the trek. We bought two other books on walks in Ireland and none of the others were nearly as good as this one for the Dingle Way. The others were more overviews. This was a very specific trail guide with precise distances, markers, turns etc.-- Verified purchaser * Amazon customer review *
The indispensable guide for the Dingle Way ... water-resistant pages in a ring binder, with color photos and good maps.-- Peter Bridges * Washington Times Special 22 July 2006 *
