About this deal

This is a heroic study of survival against the odds, as together they take a journey, up hill and down dale, with rucksacks full of kennomeat, along Britain's longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset. First they had to survive against all odds as they embarked on a heroic journey up hill and down dale, with rucksacks full of Kennomeat, along Britain's longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset. Three Points of the Compass is not a particularly doggy type chap, nor is this book particularly well written. Having visited Cornwall last year, I looked forward to this revisit, but I'm afraid I tired off it gradually. Not exactly as Mark had planned, however: this time his companion was to be the delectable Jennifer - but she was held up at the office, and when Boogie was dropped off at the kennels the other dogs complained.

Boogie up the River' is about travelling the length of the Thames, from London up-river to its source.THE BOOK Omnibus edition of Mark Wallington's two humour/travel classics featuring the much-loved Boogie. In the second story, the author and Boogie take a rowing boat along the Thames, from London to its source in the wilds of Wilts/Glos - also an enjoyable light read only slightly marred by the introduction of a repellent love interest!

No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.Raynor Winn mentions it in The Salt Path as being a book she’d read years before starting out on her own walk along the path. For those wanting both a stove and light that will operate off a small gas canister, Coleman once produced what was probably the lightest lantern option.

I found this a very enjoyable read, funny in places, and a great advocate for the places the author has visited. The path goes along Devon and Cornwall's rugged north coasts and their less rugged south coasts as well as Dorset’s chalk cliffs. Three Points of the Compass sets out on a winter wander from London to Birmingham along the Grand Union Canal. It reads as a bit 'dated' but then that's also interesting, as it reminds me of how life was in England in the 70's (80's?

The humorous travel book we've been waiting for' DAILY MAIL) In BOOGIE UP THE RIVER, man and dog take to the water to trace the source of the Thames in a siff of the same vintage as Three Men in a Boat.
