  A picture from Snaefell  
  A lot happens on Snaefell  
  The railway goes up it, the TT motorbike race goes round it, the mine went under it, sheep farming happens all over it, and the hotel, radio masts and air traffic control communications cluster at the top.  
  Snaefell is home to the smallest tree on the island, hares that turn white in winter and some of the rarest birds of prey in Britain. It is also crossed by the Millennium Way long distance footpath, which opened in 1979 – no waiting for the calendar millennium for the Manx, they had one of their own.  
  Containing everything from archive photographs to background details of how equipment is maintained on a site with no road access, Two Fish for the Summit provides a fascinating insight into life and work on Snaefell.
  And the title? Look at the book details to find out!
