Hill Walking Essentials

The great poets like Yeats and Wordsworth weren't wrong to write about the uplifting and beguiling spirit of the hills. And walking in them is truly 3000 feet closer to heaven. They can also give your lungs a good blast and your legs a good burn. This DVD package shows you how to join in the fun.
