Description

Coleridge was the first person to walk the mountains alone, and not because he had to for work, as a miner, quarryman or shepherd, but because he wanted to for pleasure and for adventure. His rapturous encounter with their natural beauty, and its literary consequences changed our view of the world.This beautifully illustrated book contains an account of his walks and explorations in the Lake District based on the jottings in his notebooks and his vast correspondence.
