Blurb:

Rory Stewarts father, Brian, taught him to walk, and walked with him on journeys from Iran to Malaysia. Now they have chosen to do their final walk together along 'the Marches' - the frontier that divides their two countries, Scotland and England. 

On their six - hundred mile, thirty year journey - with Rory on foot, and his father 'ambushing' him by car - the pair relive Scottish dances, reflect on Burnese honey-bears, and on the loss of human presence in the British landscape. Their odyssey develops into a history of nationhood, an anatomy of the landscape, a chronicle of contemporary Britain and an exuberant encounter between a father and son.
