Walking with the Famous and the Infamous in Shropshire

                        How many historical characters can you name who once lived or had strong links with Shropshire?
 Charles Darwin, Clive of India and Thomas Telford yes, but what about Abraham Darby and Caractacus?
Those not always noted for their good natures include Judge Jeffreys, the hanging Judge, Mad Jack Mytton, Wild Edric who led resistance to the Norman invasion, Ippikin the 14th Century robber knight and Wild Humphrey Kynaston, a 16th Century highwayman.

In this unique book 15 walks take you through the areas where they lived, worked, died or acted out the events for which they have become renowned - while at the same time relating the principal events of their lives. In an original and distinctive style they are written through the characters' own eyes - as if they were telling their own stories - bringing both the walks and the characters alive.

REVIEWS

May I congratulate you on a wonderfully written and unique book which I
will be highly recommending to everyone!  Leyla Carrington

Jain curled up in an armchair yesterday afternoon and read the entire book
and asked me to let you know she thoroughly enjoyed it and would have bought
it even as a 'non-walker' for the entertaining stories alone !!  Chris Goodall
