'It was an epic undertaking by a man with a powerful personal attachment to that part of the world. However, The Mountains Look on Marrakech is not the story of a lone traveller in a dry and dusty wilderness - far from it. It is rooted in a sense of camaraderie and shared experience while celebrating a richly varied environment, the descriptions of which will amaze anyone who believes Morocco is (to use Brown's words) "all camels and kasbahs". ...vivid and compelling record engaging storyteller ... Supplemented by maps and colour photographs, The Mountains Look on Marrakech is a delightful volume which clearly falls into the "labour of love" category' -Caithness Courier and The Northern Times 'This book does not disappoint. ... Hamish is an imaginative user of metaphors, and the text is also peppered with quotations... excellent sketch maps demonstrate the route.' - Leopard Magazine '...this is no stuffy tome. The book is a delight. Much more than a mere travelogue, the journey is the thread along which the narrative is woven. Hamish's affection for the Berber people and their country is apparent and he shares with the reader anecdotes and knowledge accumulated over the years. ...It's an essential aid for planning expeditions, supplies background information for anyone joining an organised trek, and is a good read for armchair travellers.' - John Muir Trust Journal
