Over the hills and along the byways of the British Isles, Times Columnist and author Christopher Somerville shares his story of a year of walks describing the history, wildlife, changing landscapes and people he passes and reflects upon his childhood. Shortlisted for the Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize 2017, The January Man is an exquisitely written account of the British countryside which inspires us to don our boots and explore the 140,000 miles of footpaths available to us throughout the UK.  Christopher has spent more than 25 years traversing the world’s walking routes, weaving stories from the paths beneath his feet. Amongst his publications are the phenomenally successful Coast series, he also edits The Times Britain’s Best Walks.
