Devised with the aim of linking the two great seas that cradle Andalucía, the Andalucian Coast to Coast Walk crosses the heart of southern Spain, from the small Mediterranean village of Maro to Bolonia beach on the Atlantic seaboard, a day's walk from the bustling port of Tarifa. A village-to-village walk, the 416km trail follows the Penibetic mountain range across the provinces of Málaga, Granada and Cádiz, passing through six beautiful Natural Parks and visiting some of the region's most picturesque and characterful towns and villages, including Ronda. This guide presents the waymarked route in 21 day stages, each with clear route description and mapping and notes on the villages and other local points of interest. You'll find all the practical information needed to plan and execute a successful trip, with advice on when to go, transport, accommodation and food. Useful contacts and a Spanish-English glossary can be found in the appendices. Boasting magnificent mountain scenery, charming villages and a rich and fascinating history, it is little surprise that Andalucía has long been popular with visitors. The Andalucian Coast to Coast Walk showcases the vibrant culture and enchanting landscapes for which the region is famed: it takes in mountain views and dramatic gorges, flower-strewn valleys and cultivated fruit groves, with highlights including Moorish Ronda, Roman ruins at Bolonia and the traditional 'pueblos blancos' (white villages).

The South West Coast Path is the longest of Britain’s National Trails, following the spectacular coastline for 630 miles around the southernmost tip of England from Somerset all the way to Dorset. This volume of the Official National Trail Guide, published in association with Natural England, features the second section of 169 miles (271 km), from Padstow in north Cornwall to Falmouth on the south coast. From the surfing mecca of Newquay and St Ives’s golden beaches it hugs the rugged clifftops round Land’s End and the Lizard – as far west and south as it is possible to go in Britain – visiting serpentine harbours and craggy coves such as Cadgwith and Porthcurno with its dramatic open-air theatre. Besides truly wild sea-life like seals and fulmars, the Path offers the only chance anywhere in the country to see the delightful red-beaked chough. For the holiday stroller or the long-distance walker, this official guide contains everything you need. This new edition has been fully updated and revised, and completely re-designed with many new photographs, for 2013. It features Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps for the whole route.

The South West Coast Path National Trail (SWCP) measures a staggering 630 miles (1015km) from Minehead on the Somerset coast right round Devon and Cornwall to Poole in Dorset. The guidebook divides the route into 45 stages of between 12.5- 37.5km beginning and ending where amenities are available. No other stretch of coastline compares for scenic splendour, historical sites and availability of refreshments, accommodation and public transport, making it easy to split the South West Coast Path into week or weekend-long sections. Written by prolific outdoor writer Paddy Dillon, this guidebook is packed with lots of information for planning your walk, including clear step-by-step route descriptions and OS map extracts, public transport links, accommodation and facilities along the way. Also described is the 17-mile South Dorset Ridgeway, from West Bexington to Osmington Mills, which can be used as a scenic way to shave 42 miles off the total distance. This epic route takes in Exmoor National Park, five Areas of Outstanding National Beauty and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, besides various nature reserves and SSSIs.

The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path National Trail is an easy-to-follow 130-mile trail that combines the best of inland and coastal walking in Norfolk, and one that, being well waymarked, largely flat and within easy reach of public transport for most of its length, is ideal for people new to long-distance walks. Described in 11 stages, the route can be walked in just over a week but also easily split into day walks or over a series of weekends, with full information about access to start and finish points for each stage by public transport. This handy guidebook is illustrated throughout with extracts of OS 1:50K mapping and stunning photographs depicting the Trail in all seasons and describes points of interest along the way, including the Norfolk Songlines sculptures, and also facilities available in the towns and villages. The trail is a walk of two halves. The Peddars Way begins at Knettishall Heath in Suffolk and follows the route of an old Roman road for over 40 miles to Holme-next-the-Sea, where it meets the Norfolk Coast Path (which begins nearby, at Hunstanton). This then follows the spectacular Norfolk coast to the seaside town of Hopton-on-Sea.

Since 1995, Steve McVey’s Grace Walk (over 250,000 sold) has inspired Christians to leave behind performance- and fear-based Christianity and embrace God in all His generosity and grace. Steve’s devotional draws on Scripture and the Grace Walk message, enabling readers to take in life-changing teaching piece by piece and day by day. As they grasp that God’s grace is immensely more than a doctrine, they will discover why it’s all right to give up on themselves and their efforts; new ways to quit “doing” for God so that He can live through them; and how to view the Bible, salvation, and evangelism from a new perspective. This power-packed book will lead believers to understand who they are in Christ, help them relax and delight in Jesus’ love and friendship, and find that He will do more through them and in them than they could ever do for Him or for themselves.

From the author of the Sunday Times bestseller, M: Maxwell Knight, MI5's Greatest Spymaster In the World War II era, Geoffrey Pyke was described as one of the world's great minds. An inventor, adventurer and polymath, he was an unlikely hero of both world wars. He earned a fortune on the stock market, founded an influential pre-school, and is seen as the father of the U.S. Special Forces. In 1942, he convinced Winston Churchill to build an aircraft carrier out of reinforced ice. He escaped from a German WWI prison camp, wrote a bestseller, and aided Republicans in the Spanish Civil War. He even launched a private attempt to avert the outbreak of the Second World War by sending into Nazi Germany a group of pollsters disguised as golfers. And he may have been a Russian spy. 70 years after his death, Henry Hemming reveals Pyke's astonishing story in full: his brilliance, his flaws, and his life of adventures, ideas, and secrets.
