    In 2013 Ian Crofton walked the Scots-English border from Gretna Green to Berwick-upon-Tweed. His journey, recounted in this richly evocative book, took him along river valleys, over bleak moorland and through dense conifer plantations, sometimes camping, sometimes staying in inns or B&Bs. In the best tradition of travel writing, he describes the landscape and the people - farmers, shepherds, bar staff, anglers - he meets along the way, explores the region's history, literature and legend, and reflects on the nature of borders.
