I don't know the author and indeed I have zero connection with the publisher but I do suffer from a compulsion to collect Walk Guide Books and therefore I'm very excited. According to The Collins Press, John G. O’Dwyer has walked the mountains and moorlands of Tipperary and Waterford for many years. His comprehensive guide to the best, most captivating walks in those counties features walks to suit all tastes, from the rugged Comeragh coums to the peaks of the Galtees, from the myth-laden hills of Slievenamon and the Devil’s Bit to field systems and ancient pathways in Upperchurch and Kilcommom. Each walk description has directions, the degree of difficulty, estimated time and maps.

But this is more than just a walks guide, say Collins. Each route is a journey with a story about a landscape littered with historic artifacts. A booley on a hillside tells how the uplands contributed to human survival, a working farmstead demonstrates the continuation of this, a ruined cottage confirms a battle lost. This guidebook describes walks not just for committed hillwalkers and casual ramblers. It also contains much of interest for environmentalists, historians and all who wish to better understand the age-old and complex interaction between humans and hills.
