Days to Remember is a collection of tales from well-known mountain guide Rob Collister - tales of long days on the hill, travelling fast and light, often alone, and always steering well clear of the honeypots. From day trips around his local hills in Wales, to worldwide expeditions including the Silvretta Alps, Gletscherhorn, the Cordillera Blanca and Annapurna, Rob Collister enjoys covering ground under his own steam, whether it be walking, running, climbing, cycling or skiing.
With a foreword from renowned British mountaineer and writer Stephen Venables, this collection of essays communicates Collister's connection with the history of the landscapes he explores, while demonstrating knowledge and appreciation of the flora and fauna that thrive there today.
In Days to Remember we are reminded of the fragility of our natural environment and the importance of investing in its preservation, at the same time as being captivated by the beautiful images Collister evokes with his mountain tales. This book will leave you with expanded understanding of contemporary environmental issues and a renewed hunger for days in the hills.
