About the Author:

Colin Shelbourn is a outdoor enthusiast and author of many successful walking books, mainly to the Lake District. He is resident cartoonist for the Westmorland Gazette.


'Introducing children to fell walking can be a tricky business but help is at hand in Rocky Rambler's Wild Walks, a guide to ten easy walks for budding peak baggers. Cartoon style in presentation, it brims over with colour and fun as Rocky and his friend Rachel, helped by Monty the Goat, Sid the Squirrel, Harriet the Herdwick and Kevin the Cat lead the way (as junior will head the family safari) over stiles and bridges, through muddy patches and gaps in walls, with pauses to look at interesting features, identify plants and trees, and here and there dish out warnings of possible dangers and obstacles. Riddles and rhymes add to the fun. Youngsters will rise to the challenge as they purposefully show mum and dad the way to Tarn Hows or Brandelhow, Eskdale or the Bowder Stone. Without realising it, they are taking their first steps towards sampling wanderings over the fell tops.' (George Bott, The Keswick Reminder)
