Peter Hermon, the author of Cicerone's new edition guidebooks 'Hillwalking in Wales vol 1 & 2' has written an article for the Western Mail newspaper regarding his love for the hills of Wales' Read the full article (Western Mail newspaper / Dec 4th 2006) 'It's great to see these two volumes back in print. Originally published back in 1991, they could be described as the 'Wainwright' guides of Wales, covering every major summit and describing just about every route of ascent on each peak - a Welsh mountain walker's bible. The text is well written and accurate and is accompanied by basic mapping for each mountain group. These two volumes would be my own choice from the four or five options on the market at the moment.' (Walking Wales magazine / Issue 4 2006) 'The walks are suitable for most hillwalkers and the varied landscape includes ridges, precipitous escarpments, unknown valleys, heather clad hills and some of the most remote and wildest land in Wales. The description of the walks are well laid out and both books contain some interesting and spectacular scenic colour photographs. At the back of each book is an index of all the peaks and lakes. During his working life the author Peter Hermon, was once an executive with BOAC, and being involved with Information Technology I met him there on a number of occassions during my early days there. In those days I was totally unaware of his affection for the British hills and mountains and it was only when I came across copies of the first edition of his books that I realised - 'I know that person'.' (Les Maple, Strider / April 2007)
