Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0904614492, Paperback)

The south Atlantic island of St Helena is one of the remotest inhabitated places on earth. There is no airport and the island is served by a single ship, the RMS St Helena, which is its only physical link with the outside world. But if you can get there, there is a wonderful array of things to see and places to go. And there are many wonderful walks. The island has a unique flora and fauna, and spectacular scenery. Its history follows the rise of the British empire, and the island has connections with many famous people, including Captain Cook, Bligh, Halley, Wellington, Darwin, and of course, Napoleon. To fully appreciate all that St Helena has to offer, walking is essential. This book lists 26 walks, with maps and accompanying text for each walk, covering both historical and physical features. The book includes several pages of colour photographs, as well as black and white photographs and illustrations. There is something here for everyone: challenging hikes, short afternoon walks, swimming places and picnic spots. The book puts the island's history in context, while for the newcomer it provides an introduction to the island from the landing steps onwards.
