I had great memories of my mother-in-law Diane (aka Grandee) while reading this one. “... - and I don’t need a cup on the mantelpiece or a badge on my rucksack to put that success on display. This will be the triumph of personal accomplishment over public affirmation. I’m not about medals or trophies, or if I am, I need to rethink myself. Secondly, for as long as the walk remains unfinished I still have direction, and something to aim for, and somewhere to go.” - Simon Armitage

Rousing account of a hike down the backbone of Great Britain with a poetry reading at each stop. Great companion read to The Kingdom by the Sea-Paul Theroux.

A must for any Anglophile.

Kind of mild really, & shapeless.
