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.


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
