Summary
Growing up in Marsden, England, author and poet Simon Armitage regularly saw hikers walking the Pennine Way. The 256-mile path reaches from Derbyshire to just past the Scottish border, takes approximately three weeks to hike, and covers land both beautiful and bleak. Like a troubadour of old, Armitage undertakes a walking journey, stopping each night to give poetry readings in different villages in return for a place to sleep. His account vividly captures the spirit of the countryside, its people, and his memorable experiences. - Description by Dawn Towery
