The PiXZ Boot Up Series is fast becoming a phenomenon in local walks books, aimed to attract families and others to explore the countryside in a leisurely way. The books includes short walks for those living in or visiting popular areas of the country, written by those who know the places well. They provide a healthy hour or two of exercise, discovering parts of Britain’s countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. These are perfect walks for families.

This book of 10 short walks takes the reader up Dartmoor’s famous high spots – known as tors for those who don’t know – making the most of the breathtaking views on offer while offering information about the landscape and something of the history of surrounding area. The tors explored are chosen for the variety of walk they offer and the exciting scenery.

John Earle has lived on Dartmoor since 1948. Formerly a headmaster, mountaineer and explorer, he became a familiar face on television in a long career as a presenter, broadcaster and scriptwriter. A Fellow ofThe Royal Geographical Society Alpine Club, an expedition leader and cameraman, he is also author of various mountaineering books, film scripts and walking guides for Dartmoor, Exmoor and Cornwall.

Imprint: PiXZ Books. ISBN 978 1 906887 07 0, hardback, 110x155mm, 64 pages. Published April 2009. Reprinted May 2012.
