Walking the Great Wall,
This review is from: First Pass Under Heaven: One Man's 4,000-Kilometre Trek Along the Great Wall of China (Paperback)
Nathan's account of his trek along the Great Wall of China was gripping, and difficult to put down. He and his five companions, all from very different backgrounds, set out to walk the whole of the Great Wall. Arguments between them, hardships, health problems, visa problems, run-ins with authorities, lead to very different experiences as they split up, and sometimes meet up again along the way. It is interesting to see how people react in difficult situations once difficulties arise. Personality clashes abound.
For anyone who ever thought they might want to walk at least part of the Great Wall, this book is a must. You get a real feeling of the scale, ruggedness, and sheer beauty of the Great Wall and the terrain it crosses.
