David Hunter was for many years one of the great army of London commuters, working as a credit manager for a group of department stores and later as treasurer of a large advertising agency. During this time, he escaped whenever possible to walk in the Chiltern hills and the North Downs, and made frequent forays along the Ridgeway National Trail. He also wrote features for outdoor and other magazines, and developed his interest in photography, contributing to several photographic libraries. David and his wife, Vera, moved to Worcester and began walking in the Malverns and around Bredon Hill and the hills south of Birmingham, as well as exploring the territory of the rivers Severn and Wye. He has a particular affection for Shropshire and the Welsh border country. David has had a number of books published, including five guides for Ciceron. Becoming ever more popular as a holiday destination, Turkey offers an exciting and affordable alternative to the Himalaya and other trekking areas. It is easily reached from Europe, and yet enables the visitor to experience a totally different culture and way of life, with some of the world's most hospitable and friendly people. Although still relatively unknown, there are many spectacular mountains in this large country. These range from dormant volcanoes, such as Mount Ararat, to the limestone spires of the Aladaglar and the jagged granite peaks of the "little Caucasus", the Kackar range. It is ideally suited to the trekker or mountaineer who is looking for fresh challenges in a new, unspoilt environment. This book gives the most comprehensive coverage yet of the mountains of Turkey. It covers all the principal mountain ranges, and has detailed route descriptions for the major peaks. With over 100 different treks and scrambles described, there is enough to keep the visitor busy for several visits. [via]
