Format: Paperback
We used this very interesting book as our travel guide through the French side of the Pyrenees and followed Rosemary Bailey's
re-tracing of Henry Russell's life and climbing. We saw so many beautiful places, walked, climbed, visited the towns covered in the book and even stayed overnight at the Observatory on the Pic du Midi enjoying the fascinating tours of the telescopes and observation areas. We travelled from Prades across to Biarritz as the book followed the Russell life story and achievements.A once-in-a lifetime journey!
