“As medical officer to this expedition I prescribe champagne. Where’s the medical equipment?”
W.E. Bowman, The Ascent of Rum Doodle
The Footsteps on the Mountain Travel Diaries are my expedition journals. Quick reads, they are lightly edited versions of what I scribble in my tent each evening after a day in the mountains.
The series came about almost by accident when I started putting my travel journals online. Much to my surprise they picked up a few four- and five-star reviews and soon became popular.
You can read more about the evolution of the series in this blog post.
Paperback and ebook
I am gradually re-editing the more popular diaries and releasing revised editions in both ebook and paperback format. These are the ones I’ve completed so far.
The ebook-only diaries are self-edited, and available at a reduced price from Smashwords. Some of these will eventually be re-edited and released as paperbacks.
