The Border Country PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Border Country free pdf Covering the border hills, northern Northumberland and the Southern Uplands, this third edition of the guide offers a broad selection of around 50 routes, as well as outlines of a number of long-distance trails which cross the region. The Border country that lies between England and Scotland is a countryside surrounded by ridge after high ridge rythmically fading into gently folding valleys, through which the Tweed and Teviot rivers flow. The area has been the scene of thousands of years of sometimes turbulent history, from the early iron Age, through the Roman occupation, with influences down the years of both Celtic and Christian beliefs. The guide offers the hillwalker routes which will open up this broad and expansive landscape, giving a real taste of solitude and affinity with this unique area.

About Alan Hall

An inquisitive pedestrian, full-time writer and photographer, Alan has walked in, in addition to Britain, Catalyuna and the French Pyrenees, Italy and Sri Lanka, plus some 20 Greek islands and small areas on the Greek mainland. None more extensively, however, than his favourite, the addictive island of Crete.
