Snowdon – An A – Z of Facts and Trivia – Tony Ellis

If you’re as big a fan of Wales’ highest mountain as we are then you’ll love this book written by local author and Snowdon volunteer warden, Tony Ellis. It’s a unique resource of thousands of facts and items of trivia about Snowdon, probably the busiest mountain in the world.

Some facts refer back to the formation of the mountain several million years ago, or to its shaping by the ice age which came to an end just twelve thousand years ago! But most relate to man’s presence on Snowdon in the last 400 years right up to the present day. Organised alphabetically in over 250 short sections and with over 150 illustrations, whether you’re after useful facts or far-from-useful trivia, this book is guaranteed to inform and amuse.
