About this book
Paperback edition of the poet's book chronicling his attempt to walk the Pennine Way, from north to south. He started in Scotland and walked down towards the Yorkshire village where he was born. Travelling with no money, he gave poetry readings in village halls, churches, pubs and living rooms along the way. With appeal to fans of Wainwright, Bryson and Maconie. 'It's a book as likable as the poet himself...' "Country Life"
In summer 2010 the author decided to walk the Pennine Way. The challenging 256-mile route is usually approached from south to north, from Edale in the Peak District to Kirk Yetholm, the other side of the Scottish border. He resolved to tackle it other way round: through beautiful and bleak terrain, across lonely fells and into the howling wind.
