Rating: 5 out of 5

This is one volume of two books - 500 mile walkies and Boogie up the River. I originally wanted to read the first but stayed on for the second one.

500 mile walkies is about Mark’s walk along the South West Coast Path. Raynor Winn mentions it in The Salt Path as being a book she’d read years before starting out on her own walk along the path. And that’s where I learned of this book from. I’m currently doing a virtual walk along the South West Coast Path (I’ve just walked around the Lizard peninsular) and so have revisited The Salt Path, and read this as being topical to my virtual walk.

The writing style in both books is light and humorous and I enjoyed them both. I particularly enjoyed getting to know Boogie and all his quirks and tricks. A truly characterful dog.
