The Wild Rover: A Blistering Journey Along Britain’s Footpaths

The Wild Rover: A Blistering Journey Along Britain’s Footpaths by Mike Parker

In books read on June 28, 2014

Enjoyable enough, though I think "a brilliant, intelligent and witty exploration of a glorious and passionate British subject - footpaths and our rights of way" is overstating it a bit. To start with I wasn't sure there was enough in the subject of footpaths to fill a whole book, and by the end I thought there was probably a lot more to the subject than was covered here. I suspect that means the author actually got the balance fairly right, it doesn't go into enough detail in places but it doesn't get boring either. And I'm left wanting to read his book about maps, Map Addict: A Tale of Obsession, Fudge & the Ordnance Survey, next.

This was a kindle eBook.
