Fishlock's Wild Tracks
Published to accompany the third series of Wild Tracks, HTV’s most successful programme, this book follows twelve of Fishlock’s walks in Wales. Not a guidebook so much as an itinerary of places of historical and cultural interest, Fishlock meets local characters and searches out the oddities of history in Wales.
Fishlock’s writing has a clarity and descriptive quality which is matched by stills taken from the television series. Although the films are broadcast only in Wales and on cable television, armchair travellers and everyone with an interest in the matter of Britain will find something to charm or puzzle them in this book.
