CHRISTOPHER SOMERVILLE – JANUARY MAN: A YEAR OF WALKING BRITAIN
Monday 5 June at 3pm
"This is nature at its most embracing; human nature richly woven into the cycle of the seasons and the ecologies of father and son, observed with the passion and learning of Britain's favourite walker. A truly wonderful, uplifting book, bursting with life." Nicholas Crane, BBC TV 'Coast' Presenter
Times columnist and author Christopher Somerville shared a love of long distance walking with his late father. And through a year of walking, in rain and fair weather, from the River Severn to the Lake District, the Norfolk Coast to the Isle of Foula off the west coast of Shetland, he has come to better understand his father in the landscapes they shared. Describing the history, wildlife, landscapes and people he passes, these are words to inspire you to don your boots and explore.
