Special offers and reduced books
Many of our older books, some books we perhaps just printed too many of and a few we want to get out there, are often half price on the site. Some you’ll just need to find, but here’s a quick list of the best of them:
If you’re a prospective author, you could do worse than reading one of our books before you submit. We are quite specific about what we like. I’d like to say we know our readers and we know what they like to read. Before submitting, I do suggest looking at Big Trails: Great Britain & Ireland, or Swimming Wild in the Lake District if you’re sending in a guidebook, and Broken or Tides if it’s more narrative. These books demonstrate that unique combination of quality, sometimes quirky writing style, narrative arc and well-presented insight.
We have a bunch of books that have been signed by the author; the best of which are:
What would we recommend is the best climbing book or the best outdoor adventure book?
Here’s five to get you started:
To Live – a truly epic read; harrowing, life affirming, gripping and about as good as mountaineering literature gets.
Winter 8000 – an epic of the genre; a history of hardcore.
Waymaking – what happens when you ask the world’s greatest writers on adventure to send you a chunk of their best work.
Wild Winter – a love letter to the highlands from an enthusiastic, if not entirely energetic, beau to his older and wiser, long suffering, perhaps slightly reluctant lover.
Big Trails – everyone should do one before they die. From the Dales Way to the Pennine Way, the ups and downs of the very best.
And finally, something special
Our collection of gift boxes make beautiful presents. For the price of the books, we package them up with a few choice other gifts, finished with elegant rustic wrapping. Popular as birthday presents, the All About Scotland gift box is the most popular, followed by Adventures on Two Wheels and Inspiring Reads.
And if that is no help at all – just phone us up and tell us what you like and we can recommend a book, taking payment over the phone … we’re usually in from 8.30 a.m. until 5 p.m., unless we’ve gone climbing.
