Reviews

Praise for `Ramble On':

`McKay makes an agreeable tramping companion. For McKay walking is a serious pleasure, which is as it should be' Tom Fort, Sunday Telegraph

`Ramble On is a fascinating and lovingly written book that gets to the heart of a pursuit enjoyed by thousands throughout the British Isles every weekend' Carl Wilkinson, Financial Times

`Excellent history of the pastime ... McKay's gripping story of the struggle is enlivened by atmospheric descriptions of his own rambles and is rich in anecdote' John Harding, Daily Mail

`Sinclair McKay aims to convey the essence of this story through visits to some of the often inspiring places in which it has been acted out.' Guardian

Chronicles the changing relationship between landowners and roamers, and branches out into B&B, Wordsworth, Wainright, shifting patterns of class and the history of walking togs' Country Life

`Charming book - part of a history of British walking, part of a memoir of McKay's wanderings.' Daily Telegraph

`Highly companionable ... McKay gives a fascinating account of how walkers have since the Thirties battled landowners for the right to roam across Britain.
