Product description


'inspiration for trips to discover the human stories remembered in the landscapes of the world' * The Great Outdoors * 'This beautifully produced book provides the chance to follow in our ancestors' footsteps - literally. From Australia to Offa's Dyke, the Neolithic to the 1970s, there's a huge range on offer. Helpful details of the length and difficulty of the walk are also included.' * History Revealed * 'colourful, informative and beckoning... A diverting and inspirational book. Just pick your pilgrimage and set off.' * The Field * Top 10 Books of the Summer: 'Sarah Baxter has put together a beautiful book that demands to be sipped slowly, like a well-aged whisky. This selection of 500 fascinating walks leads you step by step through history - from the ancient world to the present day. It hits exactly the right balance of fact and practical details and is filled with beautiful illustrations that will make even the most dedicated armchair traveller want to get up and take a walk themselves.' * World Travel Guide * 'If you love rambles along historic routes, get a copy... It has line-drawing route maps and an interesting narrative, so that wherever you're going in the world you can find an interesting historic walk.' -- Jane Knight * The Times *
