What it is definitely not is "Stuart Maconie's Favourite Country Walks", it's a book for the bedside or the loo, not to guide your next venture into the hills.
Maconie writes well, and there is much pleasure to be had from these short pieces. But the large format paperback - and price for a book in which every 3rd page is a title page - feels like pushing it a bit. 1 star deducted for feeling a trifle ripped off.
This is a book to encourage newcomers to walking, but also to bring a new energy to seasoned lovers of farm track and moor, mountain and canal side.
Read, enjoy, and get out there.
