In his own words, Kev Reynolds is ‘the man with the world’s best job’. For the past 50 years he has walked and trekked through the world's greatest mountain ranges. Age 21, he set off to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and never looked back. Now, Kev is well known as a leading authority on many mountain ranges, including the Pyrenees, many regions of the Alps, the Nepalese Himalaya and his home of the 'Kentish Alps'.

Kev has written over 50 guidebooks, and inspired thousands of those who love wild places and mountain adventures to follow in his footsteps. But with A Walk in the Clouds, he moves away from guides and offers instead this unique collection of 'moments as big as years'. Striking moments that can be recalled with all their vivid intensity even decades after they happened.

An assortment of anecdotes, observations and short stories, written with flowing descriptions and evocative beauty bring to life the best recollections of Kev's time in the mountains. Starting with his early explorations in the Atlas, Kev takes readers on a fascinating tour through the Pyrenees, the Alps, the Himalaya and beyond. The stories are in turn poingnant, humerous, tragic, exciting and insightful. He brings into vivid relief the mountains and valleys, great friends, memorable strangers and ongoing love for the rugged and wild reaches of the world. Kev's guides have taken walkers all over the world, but now readers will feel as if they're trekking right there with him.

75 stories grouped in sections - Atlas Mountains, Pyrenees, Alps, Himalaya and Other Wild Places
16 pages of evocative black and white photos of early expeditions
each tale brimming over with joy in the mountains by a master of his craft
