This is a walks book with a difference. It's aim is to take the reader on a journey of discovery whilst also providing a healthy and enjoyable walk on Dartmoor. Each walk has been selected to provide a variety of routes across a varied range of landscapes in and around the National Park. Each walk is linked to a place of particular importance in the history of the moor, with the author relating points of interest along the way. The walks included in this volume cover castles, prehistoric sites, remnants of old mining areas, farms, quarries and ancient trackways. Neither the walking nor the history is too demanding - the aim being to have an enjoyable hour or so out on the moor while coming home knowing a little more than when one left. Under John Earle's expert guidance (he's author of a number of walking guides - and has also climbed Everest!), the reader will find much here to stimulate their interest whether they are an avid outdoors person or if they prefer 'virtual walking' from the comfort of an armchair!
