"Hadrian’s Wall Path: Walking into History is a riveting, well-written chronicle of a hiking adventure across the English countryside. More importantly, it is what Jane Blanchard herself learns, that 'History becomes interesting, and it is coming alive.' Fortunately, she does this for the reader as well. I found the details to be illuminating and thought-provoking, yet simple and to the point. Some highlights of the adventure: Once Brewed, Twice Brewed; Nine Nicks of Thirlwall, King Arthur, “Bogle”, mizzle and all. Highly recommended!.” ~ Maryann Burchell, South Bay Publishing LLC
