Product Description

From Library Journal

Wayne State University professor Booth has created two walking guidebooks that will serve the average tourist in possession of a good pair of walking shoes and the desire to break away from city pavements. Most of Booth's docile adventures are between four and six miles in length and offer some form of public transport at beginning and/or end. He also delivers 11 thematic itineraries ("great castles," "famous cathedrals," "fabulous forests," etc.) for France and ten for England. Some excellent, if highly subjective, general travel advice is to be had. What may irk readers are the guides' many instances of interchangeable text (substitute "Great Britain" for "France")?although, inexplicably, whereas Booth includes eight walks in and around Paris, he ignores London. He seems a bit of a compulsive fusspot as well, which is not a surprise considering his less-than-wild locations. These are practical, take-with guides for general travel collections.?Janet N. Ross, Sparks Branch Lib., Nev.

I really enjoyed reading this book, full of wonderful descriptions of easy, scenic walks. It gives lots of arguments for why you should try walking in Britain and lots of information for how to prepare. I decided I wanted to do mostly more strenuous hikes than what's covered here, but this book was my inspiration to think about seeing Britain on foot.
