This is the third Lake District volume of Bill Birkett's prize winning andidely praised valley portraits through the seasonsl taking as it subjectne of the lesser known but perhaps most varied and beautiful of all Lakeistrict valleys the little visited and remote Duddon. Loved and celebratedn a famous sonnet sequence by Wordsworth the river Duddon runs from itsrigins on the southern slopes of Pike of Blisco at the foot of Wrynose passo the sea and more than in any other valley in the lakes it is the riverhich sets the scene and dominates the landscape. With Weatherlam and theoniston Fells to the East and Harter Fell and the Ulpha Fells to its Westhe valley still retains more perhaps than anywhere else in the district theimeless and unspoiled agricultural character which so characterizes theakes in the popular (and poetic) imagination. Stone walls solitary stone orhite painted longhouse farms with barns dot the landscape with noignificant signs of urban or even village life. Herdwick sheep andolitary walkers or farmers are the only visible inhabitants.;Bill Birkett's
