best foot books
'best foot books' is my own imprint through which I'm publishing a series of pocket books, so far each connected to walking. They include fiction and non-fiction. People love the look of them, and the fact that they fit so neatly in a hand or pocket (with pocket-sized prices)!
You'll find the books for sale on the 'My Books' page. Whiter than White is a story set on the Isle of Rum in 1913 when servants had to walk 5 miles over a high pass from Kinloch Castle to the laundry! In The Beat of Heart Stones a walker falls into step and conversation with a dry stone dyke that climbs the north side of Schiehallion for two miles in a straight line.
New for 2012 is Following our Fathers: Two Journeys among Mountains. It's a non-fiction account of two significant journeys I've made on foot in the last few years as memorials to both a friend's and my own father. I'll leave it to speak for itself below. You can also follow its progress by 'liking' its facebook page. (These two essays now form part of my fuller book Doubling Back: Ten paths todden in memory.)
