'For the whole of my outdoor life I've been under the spell cast by this most beautiful and redolent of British hills.' - Jim Perrin The life story of the British mainland's finest mountain is an enchantment, parcelled in Jim Perrin's ribboned prose. Possibly no other mountain has more story attached to it than Yr Wyddfa, Snowdon. You can approach it from a surprising number of directions: from the secrets within its fractured rocks, its shy flora, its folk tales echoing an older race and its beliefs. Stone and hut circles, forts and cairns, travellers' chronicles, industry, sport and an anthology of literature - in two languages - work on one's mind, gradually revealing the mountain's essence.
