Footsteps on the Mountain Travel Diaries

“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.

Ebook and paperback

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.

The early versions were entirely self-edited, and only available as budget-price ebooks. I am gradually producing revised editions of the more popular diaries and re-releasing them as paperbacks. These are the ones I’ve done so far.

You can read more about the evolution of the series in this blog post.
