Back cover text:

Charlie: Prince Charles Edward Stuart, second Jacobite pretender to the thrones of England, Scotland and Ireland, instigator of the Jacobite uprising of 1745, fugitive with a price of £30,000 on his head following the disaster of Culloden, romantic figure of heroic failure. 
Meg: My faithful, four-legged companion, carrier of supplies, listener of my woes, possessor of my only towel. 
Me: An ordinary guy from Falkirk only just on the right side of 40, the only man in a houseful of women, with a thirst for a big adventure, craving an escape from everyday life. 

For the first time, Bonnie Prince Charlie’s arduous escape of 1746 has been recreated in a single journey. The author, along with his faithful border collie Meg, retraces Charlie’s epic 530 mile walk through remote wilderness, hidden glens, modern day roads and uninhabited islands.


Reviews:

In classic, and accomplished, travel-writing style, Ewing nourishes the reader (the armchair walker) all along the way with titbits of history and hearsay, or lore and legend, of introspection and insight.  Northwords Now
