This audiobook is part travelogue, part history lesson detailing the author's experiences while walking the old ways--paths, roads, and trails--of his native Great Britain and other parts of the world. Narrator Robin Sachs sets an entrancing tone for the essays, luxuriating in the scenic descriptions and poetic language. Sachs will have listeners enchanted by historical details, smiling at the people met along the way, and cringing at the harsh realities of nature. Sachs gives each speaker a perfect accent, infusing every word and sentence with remarkable beauty. The essays are uplifting yet realistic, awe inspiring, eerie, and filled with so many details that memory retention would be difficult without the print version. For a simply enjoyable listening experience, this audiobook is a treat. M.M.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
