Andorra" is the other Andorra of a traditional, timeless, romantic, landlocked principality high in the Pyrenees, the Andorra of independent character and a cheerful contempt for other people's frontiers, of smugglers' paths and high mountain passes, of medieval villages and remote refuges, the Andorra of a thousand lakes, of tumbling torrents, towering peaks, splendid vistas, meadows full of wild flowers, and some of the finest paths in the Pyrenees. In addition to the walking "Walk! Andorra" includes comprehensive background information on the principality and accommodation, mountain biking routes, history and legends, and even what to do when you are not walking. "Walk! Andorra" - a modern classic from Charles Davis, the new 'rock star' of mountain walking.
