Product description

The Big Walk

A.Walker (pseudonym)

This is one man's story of the Billy Butlin walk, from John O' Groats to Land's End in 1960.  This is the walk about which Jim Musgrove, winner of the men's section writes in the forward: "The longest walk of my life, the 891-mile Butlin walk...took just 15 days, 14 hours and 31 minutes to complete. Days and Hours and minutes I'll never forget. For during them  I met some of the best sportsmen and the warmest-hearted people I've ever known."

Mr Walker proved to be one of the 'best sportsmen' because although his 'breakdown in Devon' must have been very unpleasant, he so much liked the walk - and the people that he met - that he was willing to record hi experiences. He has down so with enthusiasm, and both his factual reports and his anecdotes will be found most entertaining.

Good, dust jacket not clipped but slightly worn, paper discoloured, illustrated with thirteen plates (B/w), no markings to the text.
