I would warmly recommend this book to anyone who loves the open air and rural Britain. The author gives a detailed, but easily readable day by day account of her very long plod round our varied coastline, and one cannot help admiring her perseverance and sheer tenacity. Also to be admired is her purpose in tackling this challenge - fundraising for a worthy cause. She is sustained by the companionship of her beloved dog. She shares her perceptions of the various people she encounters, but is slightly judgemental about some of them. Still, one respects her candour. Sadly, Spud died a few years after her epic trek, having put up a defiant struggle against a terminal illness. She was a very brave woman who loved the natural world and who lived life to the full.
