About this title:

Synopsis: Nick picks eight of the most interesting traveller-chroniclers to have explored and reported on the state of the nation from Gerald of Wales who embarked on a seven week journey around the wild perimeter of Wales in March 1188 to HV Morton, the journalist and travel writer who crossed the length and breadth of England by car in the 1920s. Others include Celia Fiennes who started her many journeys around Britain on horseback in the late 1600s at the age of 20, Tudor antiquarian John Leland, Daniel Defoe, William Cobbett, Thomas Pennant, and William Gilpin, who travelled through the north of England by boat in 1770. Contents: 1. Gerald of Wales 1188 /Wales;2. John Leland 1534-43/England & Wales; 3. Celia Fiennes 1682-1712/England; 4. Daniel Defoe 1724-26/Britain;5. William Gilpin 1770-2/North England; 6. Thomas Pennant 1772/Wales & Scotland; 7. William Cobbett 1822-26/S England; 8. HV Morton 1927/England

About the Author: Nicholas Crane is a rare combination: he's an expert cartographer and an international explorer with a charisma that brings his personal obsession alive. In 1992-3 he walked alone for 18 months along the entire mountain watershed of Europe, describing this epic adventure in his award-winning book Clear Waters Rising. His next book, Two Degrees West, was an account of his walk down Britain's central meridian, and was published to great reviews in 1999. Nicholas' most recent book was his biography of the world's first modern, scientific cartographer, the Flemish-born, 16th-century genius Gerard Mercator. MERCATOR: THE MAN WHO MAPPED THE PLANET was published in 2002. He has presented 2 series of MAPMAN for BBC television and been one of the co-presenters on all 3 series of the widely-acclaimed COAST.
