Few people know the trails, by-ways and footpaths of Britain's diverse landscape as well as Christopher Somerville. With regular features in leading national newspapers and programmes appearing on TV and radio, he has vast experience of walking throughout Britain, specialising in off-the-beaten-track travel on foot. In this exciting new title from the AA, he invites you to join him on a tour of discovery along twenty of his favourite routes.
From the Cairngorms in Scotland to Penwith on the Cornish coast, Christopher tells the story of each region with his uniquely engaging prose. Each journey is a blend of landscape, geology, wildlife, music, literature, history and social history. Personal observations, anecdotes and stories capture the unique atmosphere of each region, and you can follow each of Christopher's routes with the aid of stunning photographs and specially drawn full-colour maps.
