NOWHERE FAST, WALKING THE WAINWRIGHTS by Andy Grigg. ISBN: 978-1-85058-983-9, £9.99

Nowhere Fast is the story of one family’s attempt to climb all the Wain-wrights – 214 of the country’s highest mountains – and all in the breathtakingly beautiful English Lake District.

The Wainwrights include Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw, the four highest mountains in England. Climbing more than 195,000 feet (six times the height of Mount Everest), and walking nearly 600 miles over the course of six years, Nowhere Fast follows the journey of Andy, Tania and their two sons – William and Tom, as they battle the elements to scale the peaks.

Sharing success and failure, highs and lows, laughter and tears, the challenge proves that anything is possible and that what really binds a family together is shared experience.

Andy first visited the Lake District more than 25 years ago – a trip that marked the beginning of a lifelong romance and a passion for the glorious fells.
