Publisher's Summary

As a lover of both history and the countryside, urbanite couch-potato Charlie Connelly decides to rectify this and sets out on foot along some famous routes, journeying alongside Bodica's chariot in Norfolk, reliving Bonnie Prince Charlie's flight to Skye, and taking the same tragic route as the starving famine walkers of Connemara. It's a tale that features broken toes, dead poets, a couple of ghosts, and rain. Lots and lots of rain.

Those feet were made for walking

If this is your introduction to British history it will be one of the best ways to enjoy a taster of glimpses into the past; this is history made fun. Informative with comments on the present as well as past events.

Well written and well read. A must for anyone interested in the past and present and walking through the british countryside.

I wasn't sure..........

I had made a good choice when I purchased this book. I hadn't made a good choice - I'd made an excellent choice.
This book is informative, entertaining and moving - particularly the potato famine section.
In what other book do you get possible ghosts, royal football and a prince dressed as a woman?
It's well read - and once I'd finished the book it made me want to visit the places covered.
I've bought a fair few books from Audible - this is the first one to get five stars.
I just wish there was a sequel!
