The Cathars Way is a gem of a walk, and this is a gem of a book. By turns witty, informative and lyrical, it provides the nitty-gritty of navigation, maps, eating places and accommodation, but also charts the cultural and historical life of the weird medieval sect that gives the route its name (and the sometimes equally as weird people one meets along it). Here you will find frank assessments of the route - most notably its rather dull eastern end - and lovely flights of whimsy: Not all guidebook writers would navigate by greengage trees, as he does at one point.
The book is clearly set out with short introductions to each stage of the walk, a detailed description of the route, maps, and short, engaging essays on aspects of the local culture, landscape and history. I walked the whole route in one go, but actually there's a lot to be said for dwelling a little longer in some of the more beautiful areas, - Gorge of Galamus, Roquefixade, Duilhac, Bugarach, Puilaurens - and Charles helpfully provides a series of circular walks around them.
I read one or two guides and a bit of history about the area before I embarked on the route, and I can honestly say this book knocks them into a cocked hat.
