More > interest in the working lives of those who had gone before. Additionally, through more than 1,000 articles written for the same publication on diverse topics, the writer garnered occasional snippets which would become part of the extended series brought together here. Primary sources of research for this work took advantage of living but fast-fading memory, as well as family recollections handed down and never put to paper. Brief stray references in unlikely places were bookmarked over a long period for future use. The files grew fatter, backed by hours of fascinating groundwork, in the literal sense.

The author draws upon Peak Forest legends to unite readers with Diana Eyre’s spirit. A phantom wind ushers the memory of Diana into the forest where she recants her visits to the place of... More > which the King had given authority to her ancestors. She shares treading upon thoroughfares carved out by the Romans. She recollects walks through the dark canopied forest of Hope, Derwent Valley, and Sherwood Forest, the retreat of Robin Hood. She gasps at thoughts of Henry VIII’s doings during Reformation. She recalls Eyre monuments in Hathersage Churchyard near Little John’s grave, and foresees Hathersage as the setting for the book “Jane Eyre”. As Diana relives history and superstitious tales, an elusive wolf lets out a chilling howl. The story nears its close as the wolf’s distant cry breaks the wind’s spell, and provokes it into fits of aggravated maneuverings. Seemingly, at the behest of nature’s call, the wind, having sensed it’s completed mission, takes Diana’s memories back to their former hidden realm.< Less

Bivouacs and Other Nocturnal Wanderings By Pete Draper

It was my pal S J Axtell who introduced me to hill walking in the Peak District whilst we were yet to reach our teenage years. Then after a weeklong school trip Youth Hostelling in the Lake District,... More > and a week camping in Aviemore, I was happy to continue playing football throughout my teens, up until reaching my late twenties. Returning to hill walking by the age of 28, I began rock climbing on Stanage Edge about three years later. Leaving out my 46 Expeds to the mountains of Scotland which are covered in another volume, the Peak District is where I have spent the greater part of my outdoor life. Wandering and climbing the Derbyshire hills, sometimes arriving home late at night, the idea eventually popped into my head of not only being prepared to spend a night out there in the open if I had to, but to make a night out on the hill a primary objective. And so began a series of “Bivouacs and Other Nocturnal Wanderings,” some of those that I remember, I have recounted here.< Less
