Summary

In this hilarious and heart-warming collection of essays, writer and broadcaster Stuart Maconie reflects on a life spent exploring the British countryside on foot. From the splendour of the Pennines and the Lake District to the drama of the Dorset coast; from the canals of the Midlands to wildest Scotland, this book is an attempt to explain a passion for walking and the delights it can bring. Culled from his monthly column in Country Walking magazine, it’s full of the beautiful places, magical moments and wonderful characters Stuart has encountered on his travels. It discusses such intrepid adventures as taking on the famous ‘Wainwright’ fells of the Lake District, walking Hadrian’s Wall with colleague Mark Radcliffe, and why the most important things to carry in a rucksack are a transistor radio and a small bottle of red wine.
