Product Description

Facing redundancy and an uncertain future, Peter Jackson did what many other people have done in similar situations – he ran away.

Well, nearly. He walked from Land’s End to John o’Groats and decided to take in the three summits of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis while he was at it.

‘Up the Country’ is a personal account of his 1300-mile journey from the tip of Cornwall to the far north of Scotland. Follow Peter’s progress along cliff-top and riverside, over moor and mountain and through forest and town as he moves from one surprise encounter to the next.

    A great book, thoroughly readable with plenty to make you smile. It’s got the joy and the hardship mixed just right. For people who’ve walked from Land’s End to John O’Groats, for people who are thinking about it and for people who’ll never do it…..or perhaps they just might!
