Voices From the Hills is a history of female participation in mountain running, a development that was fiercely resisted in its early years. Steve Chilton has researched his subject deeply, interviewing many female athletes whom he rightly describes as pioneers. Thanks to them, female participation has become accepted and followed avidly in all its aspects including the long distance, high ascent runs over ranges such as the Mamores and recognised challenges such as the Bob Graham Round. The many voices who speak directly from the page represent many different personalities that are united in a powerful determination to realise their various potentials and to prepare the way for the athletes who would follow in ever greater numbers.
