Ursula Martin never thought she would walk 3,700 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, and donated to her chosen charities.

Walking Wales rooted her in the country an/>Walking

It is a very descriptive story of Ursula's journey, one that you feel you are walking with her; sleeping outside and waking up with slugs in your hair and feeling the pain in your feet after a really tiring day. It's a very uplifting book, filled with hope, adventure and determination. Read more here:

Inspirational is an over used word but not in this case. Not because Ursula did this as a reaction and catharsis to her cancer but because she walked 3700 miles, on her own, in all weathers, often wild camping, and also managed to write a book about it! This is a warts and all description of a truly amazing feat. Thank you Ursula. I am going to be staying near Tywyn in the summer and I'm determined to climb Cadair.

You feel every step that Ursula takes, feel her pain and share in her joys and triumphs. It is brave. It is beautifully written. Poetic and wholly readable. It is an incredible inspiration.

Her cause, to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer, the silent killer as it’s known. I have the BRCA1 gene and my ovaries were removed earlier this year as a preventative measure against this awful disease so reading Ursula’s battle post-cancer as well as the other brave souls she met on the way felt

Well written, descriptive account of Ursula's trek round and through Wales. I had a particular investment in the story, as she stayed with us early on, as she was walking the Severn. It was great to read about the adventures and massive achievements she had after she left us, as well as all the good work raising awareness of ovarian cancer.
Ursula is currently walking down through the Balkans. I am looking forward her next book.

Inspiring and moving

A wonderful account of a great adventure. I won't quickly forget the meetings with inspiring people, the kindness encountered, the beautiful nature writing, the feminist insights. I've learned a lot and enjoyed Ursula's company. I loved the way she writes about herself; self deprecating but recognising her strengths. Very highly recommended. Thank you.
