The classic biography of Alfred Wainwright.

Alfred Wainwright’s unique hand-drawn and hand-written 'Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells' have been an inspiration to walkers for over forty years. Yet despite many bestselling books and three television series, Wainwright remained an intensely private person.

With full access to Alfred Wainwright’s private letters and unpublished material, Hunter Davies reveals a man more passionate, witty and generous than readers of his guides have come to expect. His biography throws a new and surprising light on a man who has been an enigmatic and misunderstood person.
