Walking with Harry
by John W. Winter

When Harry Birch is elected to the committee of the Thurston Ramblers, Mrs Olive Jonstone, president and founder, is horrified. In her eyes Harry is not a serious walker, he prefers low-level, fine weather walks within easy reach of pubs and tea shops.

Olive however is made of sterner stuff. She relishes the challenge of fell and mountain walks – whatever the weather. Her hero and role model is Mr Wainwright, but Harry sees her as a female version of Captain Mainwaring – bossy and humourless.

Inevitably sparks fly between them, much to the amusement of the other members of the club during their walks in the Forest of Bowland, Snowdonia, Teesdale, the Isle of Man and the Lake District.

John W. Winter has drawn on his 25 years experience leading walks in the UK and France to create the humourous novel Walking with Harry, which will appeal to walkers, ramblers and anyone who enjoys a good chuckle.

Very pleased by the comments I've had about 'Walking with Harry.'

"a really great read" - "flows so smoothly & each character comes alive" -"couldn't put it down" - liked the verbal spats between Harry and O.L. -"looking forward to your next one."

Well, here it is:"WALKING WITH HARRY IN CHAMONIX," - publication date, July 1st, 2013. Harry, he who prefers low-level strolls, walking in the Alps?? Find out why, how he re-invents himself, how he copes in the French Alps and how O.L. re-acts to the born again Harry
