Can anyone recommend any general trekking / info / mountaineering books on Sarek?

I'm not after routes just information about the area and prefer it to be in book form rather than web based.

Info about the area, season's, camping, regulations are all the things I'm interested in to begin with.

Thanks, AT
In reply to An Triubhas: It's a long time since I went there but we just had maps and some word of mouth info. I've not seen a guide book to the area and I guess it's likely to be in Swedish if there is.

I can't remember there be any regulations really, beyond for hunting and fishing I guess.

The book is many years away, and there's not a lot of information for this area on the site yet, but if you email James via the contact page then he may be able to help:

This is quite inspiring

The definitive guide to the Sarek NP is by Claes Grundsten. It has been translated into German, don´t know whether there is an English version as well.
I have been up there several times, so if you have any specific questions let me know.

There is some (very basic) info on the backside of the hiking map of the region, Fjällkartan BD10 Sareks nationalpark.
