    1. I’m not sure how I became acquainted with Alfred Wainwright’s writings, possibly due to a “if you like this, then you’ll like this” on bookselling sites because I’ve read the James Herriot books set in Yorkshire. Wainwright wrote loads of fellwalker of guidebooks of the highland plateaus in England and Scotland, along with many sketchbooks. A blurb on the book cover calls it “Gentle, wise and idyllic, it is sharp with the sights and pungent with the smells of rural England nearly f [...]

    2. I really liked the walk. I would give it 4 stars. Mr. Wainwright, however, was not so appealing, and I would have given him 1 or 2 stars. I'm glad to have read the book, and it made me want to go for a long hike!

    3. Oxfam Reading Challenge: 2017 - A non-fiction bookWainwright is a familiar figure in our household. He is the inspiration behind many a trip to the Lake District and armed with his pictorial guides I’m proud to have ticked half the peaks named on the eponymous bagging chart. Finding this memoir was therefore a very welcome addition to our existing A.W. hoard. In this very personal recollection of his pre-WWII circular journey from Settle, via the eastern flanks of the Pennines to Hadrian’s W [...]

    4. This is a fascinating book - not least because it was written in 1938 but not published until some 50 years later when the author was rather better known. It contains an immature but familiar mix of Wainwright's passion for the hills and his philosophising on the world and its people. It is a book of the times, and full of stereotypes, particularly of women. His enthusiasm for the hills is complemented by a remarkable enthusiasm for the Wall, and with the interesting background of a possible war [...]

    5. Really interesting read. As well as the story of Alf's journey from Seattle to Hadrian's Wall and back it is an interesting social commentary on the weeks before the outbreak of World War II and Wainwrights own family life.

    6. Amazing descriptions of the route and what it's like to be a lover of mountains, not so good on the social and political commentary which is very dated now.
