As Northshire branched out from VT to NY, I re-visited McKibben's hike from Ripton, VT to Garnet Lake, NY. He mines mountains of historic minutiae to contextualize gems within contemporary settings. ~ Reviewed by Bonnie Winchester

Fermor's fans will celebrate this last of his trilogy - after A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water - chronicling his famous walk through Europe in 1933-4. Beautiful writing brings you into an almost medieval Eastern Europe that vanished during WWII. Absolutely wondrous. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones

A thoughtful journey south along the Pennine Way for the poet results in nourishing entertainment for the reader. I laughed out loud and marveled at the place names and turns of phrase that pour effortlessly from his pen. This truly working poet shares a bit of his soul (and his sole) with us. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
