♥ Book Title : Honorable Bandit
☯ Full Synopsis : "Brian Bouldrey traveled to the island of Corsica, with its wine-dark Mediterranean waters, powdered-sugar beach sand, sumptuous cuisine, and fine wine. And then he walked away from all of them. Bouldrey strapped on a backpack and walked across Napoleon's native land with the same spirit many choose to dance or drink: to celebrate, to mourn, to think, to avoid thinking, to recall, to ignore, to escape, and to arrive. This wonderfully textured account of a two-week ramble along a famous Corsican hiking trail with his German friend Petra (she was good at the downhills while he was better at the uphills) offers readers a journal that is a launching point for reflection: thoughts on cultural differences, friendship, physical challenge, personal challenge, and getting very, very lost. Part travelogue, part memoir, and part lampoon, this book offers readers an impressionistic view of a little talked about yet stunningly beautiful landscape.

♥ Book Title : Gomera & Southern Tenerife
☯ Full Synopsis : "This guide is designed for those staying either on La Gomera or in the south of Tenerife. Since the two islands are just a 35-minute ferry ride apart, the book offers walks and tours on both. The book is divided into two parts. The major emphasis is on exploring the whole of La Gomera by car or on foot. But the Tenerife section of the book is also packed with suggestions: there are drives (from Playa de las Amricas/Los Cristianos) covering the whole of Tenerife, as well as the best walks in the south, within easy reach of the ferry. All walks are illustrated with 1:50,000 topo maps and all were rewalked only six months prior to publication of this new edition. All 'official' signposted and waymarked government trails have been highlighted and numbered on the walking maps - a real plus: if a walker comes across a signpost for a route not fully described in Noel's text, it can still be used as a short- (or long-!) cut. Note: those going to Tenerife for a long walking holiday, who will be based in the south, should ideally have this book and Landscapes of Tenerife.) For La Gomera: 2 car tours (with accompanying touring map), 50 long and short walks (each with 1:50,000 topo map), 18 picnic suggestions. For Tenerife: 4 car tours covering the entire island (with accompanying touring map), 9 walks in the south (each with 1:50,000 topo map), 13 picnic suggestions. Plans of San Sebastin (Gomera) and Playa de las Amricas/Los Cristianos (Tenerife). Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily. The 'Landscapes' series, with 50 destinations, has been dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times and led to Sunflower being one of only four publishers (from a field of 18) chosen as a Which?

♥ Book Title : Trekking in Corsica
☯ Full Synopsis : "A mountain range rising from the sea, Corsica holds the most arrestingly beautiful landscapes in the Mediterranean. From its cobalt blue gulfs and shell-sand beaches, hillsides of evergreen maquis give way to pristine oak, chestnut and pine forests, awesome gorges, alpine lakes and a spine of snow-streaked peaks and passes. Among the many trails that penetrate its remotest corners, the GR20, following the island's watershed, has won an international reputation. But you can also trek at lower altitudes, along ancient mule tracks between snug stone villages where the cuisine, pace of life and atmosphere has changed little in decades. Meticulously waymarked, Corsica's long-distance routes provide superlative trekking for all levels of fitness and proficiency. This guide includes: 67 detailed trekking maps; practical information, from planning your trip to minimizing your impact on the environment; accommodation and restaurant reviews; information on gateway towns and Corsican flora."Article| David Abram| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Granite Island
☯ Full Synopsis : "'Get away from here before you're completely bewitched and enslaved...' Dorothy Carrington was told, while sitting in a fisherman's cafe at the magically quiet midday hour. But enslaved she was. Granite Island, much more than a travel book, grew out of years spent in Corsica and is an incomparably vivid and delightful portrait. For the first time Corsica is brought to light as a vital element in Europe: a highly individualistic island culture whose people have nurtured their love of freedom and political justice, as well as their pride, hospitality and poetry."Article| Dorothy Carrington| Statement ..."

There is a fold-out touring map for motorists, which also highlights the various walking areas. For those without a car, there are timetables for local transport. Noel Rochford, who has written several Landscapes guides, found the Corsicans to be the friendliest people he encountered throughout his travels. But the landscapes enchanted him as well: ?'No other Mediterranean island can boast such a wealth of natural beauty. Beaches to suit every taste: from long stretches of glaring white sand to pink rocky coves. Real mountains climbers' terrain - that reach almost 3000m/9000ft. In these mountains you stumble upon a magnificent mixture of pine forests, beech woods, chestnut groves, and coppices of evergreen oaks. Streams bound down the mountainsides; rivers cascade through awe-inspiring gorges, leaving behind blue-green pools as clear as crystal. The pink granite hills and cliffs, normally conjured up only for an artist's canvas, are real indeed on Corsica.'' 10 car tours (and accompanying touring map), 45 long and short walks (each illustrated with a 1:50,000 topo map), 14 picnic suggestions.

♥ Book Title : Walks in Silverdale and Arnside
☯ Full Synopsis : "A popular walking guide to the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), at the top of Morecambe Bay in Cumbria and Lancashire, north west England, overlooking the Lake District. 21 day walks are described and hand-illustrated, between Carnforth, Holme, Milnthorpe and Arnside, climbing wooded hills and limestone escarpments with views of the Lake District fells, visiting nature reserves including Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, crossing the Bay itself to Kents Bank and following the canal. Many are the visitors who have speeded past to more renowned National Parks, who, when they do turn off to Silverdale or Arnside, wonder why they didn't come to this beautiful area before. The combinations of rocky coastal scenery, woodland and rough limestone hills either side of the M6 in north Lancashire, make this a paradise for walkers. There is an extensive network of well walked paths through an intricate rocky landscape, a joy to explore. The area is renowned for its flora and fauna, its historic buildings and interesting geological features. Walks are between 2 and 8 miles but packed with interest, taking longer than their mileage implies, and can be combined for longer days."Article| Brian Evans| Statement ..."
