This is a sumptuous celebration of the mountains of Wales.

Scaling verbal and visual heights, it combines pithy writing and striking photography as ten well-known authors explore and explain the appeal of their favourite Welsh hill or peak.

Some of these are well established landmarks on the tourist and mountaineering maps of Wales, others are more remote and private. Some are dramatic, brooding presences, dominating their landscape. Others are more unassuming. But, north or south, east or west, each is a place in the heart as much as a geographical feature.

Ray Wood is world-renowned as a mountaineering photographer and his images give this collection its stunning visual integrity and impact. Complementing the authors' revelations, the photography allows us to climb each mountain - without safety harness and crampon, without fear of vertigo - leaving us with a breathtaking, not a breathless, experience.
