Where to Buy
Peter Hermon was bought up in Nottingham and was a frequent trekker in his school days. For most of his working life, Peter was an exceutive with BOAC and then British Airays, but despite travelling the world, and a particular affection for the Grand Canyon, the lure of the British hills never paled and he still explores the peaks of Lakelanbd, Wales and the Pennines.View author profile
