'I think this is the most beautiful book I have seen about the hills of Ireland. I've throughly enjoyed reading about the mist and the magic, the timeless nature of the hills, the solitary wanders and those giants that lie on the very edge of Europe. This is a book in a thousand. Buy it, read it, then go west'
-- Cameron McNeish, review, TGO May 2011

The stunning images and compelling narrative are more than enough to inspire this reader to get off the couch and start walking! Thank you Adrian Hendroff for opening my eyes to Ireland's hidden treasures'
-- Bernadette McDonald, author, climber, festival director
