Description

In a distinguished writing career lasting more than seventy years Harry Griffin reflected on and documented the landscape, history and people of his beloved Lake District. To mark his centenary year in 2011 this is a new selection of his previously uncollected writings on the mountains, on climbing and on the social history of the Lakes. It also includes passages from Music and Mountains, his unfinished and final manuscript which records both his experience as music critic of the Daily Mail in Manchester before and after the war where he met and heard many celebrated musicians and, more personally, recounts the importance of his own daily struggles with performance. It includes notes from his personal diaries of some of his fellwalking routes in Cumbria.
