The High Places : Leaves from a Lakeland Notebook Hardback
Illustrated by Alfred Wainwright
Better known as Harry Griffin, and for fifty years the Guardian's country diarist, A.H.
Griffin also wrote a weekly feature called 'Leaves from a Lakeland Notebook' for the Lancashire Evening Post for almost thirty years until his death in 2004.
The High Places is a selection of those articles with illustrations by a man who shared his passion for the Lake District: Alfred Wainwright.
Griffin's descriptions of days spent in the mountains and discussions of diverse Lake District matters - from the number of cairns being built by walkers to the quality of a farmer's wife's mutton pie - perfectly combine with drawings from Wainwright's five-volume Lakeland Sketchbook series to make The High Places a delightful celebration of the mountains and fells of Lakeland and their history.
