Highly recommended reading for anyone who loves being active in the great outdoors. There are more than 50 different accounts of mountain adventures here, in more than 50 different voices, each giving a different perspective on fell-running. From short races to 24-hour circuits and two-day mountain marathons, from Scotland to the Lakes, Shropshire to Yorkshire - each one is different, but each manages to conjure up a sense of actually being there. If you can't actually get out and do one of these races yourself, then reading a chapter from The Best of the Fells is the next best thing (and a lot easier). This is a wonderful little book - it's almost like carrying the fells around with you in your pocket. And it's all in an excellent cause...
