Gordon Wilson is a Pyrenees fanatic who has been hiking in these mountains for 20 years. He is also a keen hiker in his native United Kingdom and has experienced the Austrian Alps, the White Mountains in the United States and Californian coastal trails. Now retired aged 69, he spent the first half of his working life as a hell-raising journalist and the second half at the United Kingdom Open University where he was Professor of Environment and Development. He and his partner live in Yorkshire, England.
‘If we could traverse this mountain barrier dividing Spain from France, so could any other reasonably fit person who loves to walk among mountains.’ So thought Gordon Wilson and his partner on meeting a fellow, much younger trekker in the Pyrenees. If you're contemplating a wild, beautiful trek, Gordon’s blend of practical advice and storytelling may be just what you need to create the reality.
