Details

Encouraged by his adventure-loving wife Wendy, philosophy buff Gary Hayden sets out to walk to 850 miles from John o’Groats to Land’s End. The landscapes they encounter evoke Plato’s love of beauty, Epicurus’ joy in the simple life and Rousseau’s reverie. On the Pennine Way, Hayden experiences Schopenhauer’s ‘state of elevation’, and by the end of the journey has come to understand, with Bertrand Russell, that real happiness derives from contact with the life of the Earth.
