by | Read by John Hillaby

Contemporary Culture • 8.4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1968

Hillaby, a naturalist and author of several similar books, describes his two-month walk from the south (Land’s End) to the north (John o’Groats) of Britain. He discusses the land, the people and their history. Hillaby reads in a conversational manner, giving vent to emotion at times, and often giving his impressions of the accents of the various regions. While interesting, the story would be more successful on audio if the listener had a detailed knowledge of British geography or a detailed map. Since a map isn’t included with the tapes, it’s likely that most listeners will come to this title without the references needed to put place names and regional descriptions in context.
