The author's love of history and the landscape in which he travels shines through in this modern day adventure.

About the Author:

GREGOR EWING has combined his passion for the outdoors with his love of Scottish history in undertaking the six-week journey that led to Charlie, Meg and Me. Always looking to widen his knowledge of Scotland's past, he is as happy trawling through a tome by a warm fire as he is exploring ruins and battlefields. His outdoor exploits were initially a means of gaining fitness, but after completing the Duke of Edinburgh award and steadily ticking of Munros, he has come to appreciate the beauty and freedom of Scotland's remote landscapes more than ever. Gregor is based in Falkirk, where he works in property management and lives with his wife, Nicola, their three daughters, Sophie, Kara and Abbie, and their dogs, Meg and Ailsa.

Review:

In classic, and accomplished, travel-writing style, Ewing nourishes the reader (the armchair walker) all along the way with titbits of history and hearsay, or lore and legend, of introspection and insight. NORTHWORDS NOW
