'A beautifully written, potted history of fell-running and famouse fell-runners. Definitely worth a peep!' Country Walking 'Imagine how strange it feels not only to have read a book about fell-running, but to have enjoyed it so much that I am now contemplating trying the sport myself...a lovely little book'. Annalisa Barbieri, New Statesman -- Annalisa Barbieri New Statesman 'A minor masterpiece.' Sports Book of the Week -- Frank Graham The Sunday Times 'A rousingly readable chronicle... The book wants for nothing in terms of rhythm and drama and tug.' -- Christopher Bray The Sunday Times 'Sports book of the season - a terrific story of fell-running and obsession.' -- Blake Morrison Guardian '[An] excellent book.' -- James Eve The Times 'One of the most effervescent books about anything - never mind fell-running - that I have ever read.' -- Dave Jones Fellrunner
