The Alps rank high among the world's foremost destinations for canyoning. This book brings together all the most celebrated descents in the Alpine regions of northern Italy and Ticino in Switzerland, including classic limestone canyons and superb granite-gneiss water sculptures. Divided into five areas, the descents described in the guide present a huge variety of terrain, rock and styles of canyoning. Route difficulty is split into seven grades, from easier canyons suited to beginners, through to the strongest aquatic and technical challenges, which demand experienced rope skills, physical fitness and a calm head for high water. The guide provides comprehensive background information on equipment, hazards and techniques, as well as details of Alpine geology and the history of canyon exploration. The book also features additional nearby routes in Austria, Slovenia and in the Valais Alps, as well as the climbing, via ferrata and walking options in the surrounding hills and mountains.

Cheryl Richardson believes that today we face a crisis of spirit and a longing for a sense of purpose that will give meaning and direction to our lives. This crisis, caused by a disconnection from our inner selves, leaves us feeling empty and lost. In this book, she hopes to address the recurring problems that she's witnessed during her years of coaching clients and speaking to self-help audiences throughout the world. Part mentor, part friend, she picks up where Take Time for Your Life and Life Makeovers left off in this practical, step-by-step plan that should help to build confidence and eliminate self-defeating behaviours. By learning new self-honouring skills, like setting boundaries with grace and love or developing greater self discipline, readers should then be better able to own and use their unique talents and gifts.
