About the Author:

Hugh Walpole was one of the most widely admired novelists of the first half of the twentieth century, and the hugely successful Herries Chronicles made him a rich man. Popular amongst, and generous to, other writers, he was knighted in 1937 and died in 1941.Eric Robson was born in southern Scotland and has lived most of his life in Cumbria. For the last 15 years he has had a small farm in the southern Lake District where he keeps sheep. A broadcaster and television documentary maker, he got to know Alfred Wainwright uncommonly well while filming with him in the 1980s. He was executive producer of Granada's Wainwright Country and consultant for the BBC's Wainwright Walks series. He is best known as the presenter of Radio 4's Gardener's Question Time, where he sees his job as keeping the panellists from 'straying into horticultural Latin'.To visit Eric's Striding Edge website click here
