After an initial visit of three months to the Atlas Mountains in 1965, well-known travel writer, climber and photographer Hamish rown has been back every year since, continuing his love affair with a beautiful country and people. In his own words, 'I had put feet to my dream and this book is the story of that dream, the end-to-end trek of the Atlas Mountains, a 900-mile walk in 96 days, which I want to share before everything recedes like a tide in the flat waters of memory'. Hamish recounts the rich culture and proud history of the Berber peoples of the Atlas in this richly-satisfying and fascinating travelogue, which is complemented by a selection of stunning photographs of landscape, people, buildings and plant life.
A professional writer, lecturer and photographer specialising in mountain, outdoor, travel and related topics, etc. the editor has written over 20 books including Hamish's Mountain Walk, his first and award-winning book.
