Hadrian's Wall Path: Walking into History

Just like in the other “Woman on Her Way” books, Hadrians Wall Path: Walking into History takes you along on Jane V. Blanchard’s physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wanderings as she explores Englands Hadrian’s Wall Path. Her heartfelt descriptions of the terrain, the culture, the challenges, and her personal growth and changes let you experience her venture on this ancient Roman frontier between England and Scotland.

Join her as she walks eighty-four miles across northern England. With more than 130 photos and illustrations, you can see the majesty of ancient Roman engineering and the beauty of the Cumbrian and Northumberland landscapes and glimpse at what Roman life was like more than 2000 years ago.  As you explore the sites and legends associated with this historical wall, perhaps you too will journey back to the time of the Romans, the Brigantes (powerful Celtic British tribes) and the Picts (ferocious Celtic Scottish tribes).

Hadrian’s Wall Path: Walking into History received the prestigious 2015 President’s Award from the Florida Authors & Publisher’s Association in the adult non-fiction category.

“Hadrian’s Wall Path: Walking into History is a riveting, well-written chronicle of a hiking adventure across the English countryside. More importantly, it is what Jane Blanchard herself learns, that ‘History becomes interesting, and it is coming alive.’ Fortunately, she does this for the reader as well. I found the details to be illuminating and thought-provoking, yet simple and to the point. Some highlights of the adventure: Once Brewed, Twice Brewed; Nine Nicks of Thirlwall, King Arthur, ‘Bogle’, mizzle, and all. Highly recommended!” ~ Maryann Burchell, South Bay Publishing LLC
