In 1992-3 he walked alone for 18 months along the entire mountain watershed of Europe, describing this epic adventure in his award-winning book Clear Waters Rising. He has presented two series of Mapman for BBC television and been one of the co-presenters on all three series of the widely-acclaimed Coast.

wonderfully written and superbly illustrated with photos, maps, and prints * GOOD BOOK GUIDE *
