One Woman Walks Wales

One Woman Walks Wales

By Ursula Martin

'A rare combination of an epic tale of an extraordinary adventure and a delicately woven study of the kindness of random strangers. Hugely enjoyable' Clare Balding

Autobiography & Memoir, Non-Fiction, Travel



Ursula Martin never thought she would walk 3700 miles around Wales, but following a cancer diagnosis it seemed like the only reasonable thing to do. In 17 months, she traversed beaches and mountains, farms and urban sprawl.  She received unimaginable support – people offered beds, food, cups of tea, donated to her chosen charities.  Walking Wales rooted her in the country and in herself; her account of the physical and mental challenges painting a unique portrait of the natural landscape of a country and its people.
