W. A. Poucher's guides, first published in the 1960s, are some of the most popular books for fellwalkers, climbers and scramblers ever published. They are packed with guidance on clothing, equipment, accommodation, route finding, distances and times, all in an attractive pocket-sized format to slip into your rucksack. Aspiring landscape photographers will find a chapter of essential tips in each book to help them too. Since the author's death in 1988, the guides have been updated in consultation with John Poucher, the author's son.
