Classic Mountain Days

by Gareth Llywd Jones





A pictorial mountain memoir that illustrates over 60 years of mountain exploration and adventure.  Since the author came to Ireland, from Wales, in 1962 he has seen the hills change from wild landscapes with few trails, to popular, heavily tracked mountains.

This 300 page book will appeal to the large number of people, from around the country, now involved with and taking up hill walking.  It illustrates over 50 walks from Wicklow to Kerry, from Clare to Mayo and Donegal to Down as well as treks in the UK, Europe and North America. These treks recognise the geology and glacial activity in the hills.

Gareth Jones lives in Dublin with his wife and is a geologist specialising in microfossils and geothermal energy.
