    1. This book was so much fun Guidebooks can be boring and frequently outright wrong as the author herself points out from her reliance on guidebooks on this trip , but this one not only leaves you with the feeling of having been along for the trip, it strives to provide accurate information and real time corrections to the misinformation published in other guidebooks about this path I didn t even know about Hadrian s Wall Path before reading this book But now that I have been introduced to it, I ha [...]

In 2010, my wife and I spent a long week on the Hadrian s Wall Trail in late September and early October, stamping our Trail passports diligently and collecting our Hadrian pins to mark the achievement Three years later, author Jane V Blanchard and her husband Dennis also walked the wall and this book is her account of their adventures along the Wall Trail.They walked from West to East in August while we walked from East to West about 6 weeks later We collected passport stamps and pins, she wrot [...]

    5. Best book of the lot on Hadrian s WallBeen reading a handful of books related to history of The Wall and hiking it Some gave way too much history miles of minutia, so to speak This one gave just the right mix of history, culture, and travel details in a delightful presentation Tailored to the hiker, it broadly appeals to the spectator reader who is curious and may be enticed to take the hike one day Jane is a trained technical writer, but her book is no hard slog It is breezy, her story lightly [...]
