9780091908751: The Hike

For three grumpy old men, travelling at various speeds in the slow lane of retirement, their chosen method of escape from the modern world is a weekly hike in the Peak District where they can indulge their passion for bickering among themselves. As warm as the wind is cold, as dry as the lashing rain is wet, The Hike is a hilarious tale of bum-warmers, crayfish-fanciers, East German Trabant enthusiasts, bodger philosophers, sticky ginger cake, gorgeous countryside and the subtle art of 'onedownmanship'.

About the Author:

Don Shaw began writing full-time in 1968 and soon became one of Britain's top television writers, with credits including Z-Cars, Dangerfield and Van der Valk. His Wingate trilogy of plays and Bomber Harris both won BAFTAs. He has also written a number of film screenplays. Don has made many TV appearances, discussing a variety of topics ranging from the Carl Bridgewater murder, the IRA and the Falklands War to the 'Keep Brian Clough at Derby' campaign which he led in 1973. He is still a regular guest on BBC Radio Derby. As well as hiking, Don still finds time to run three miles a day, and his other great passion is flying his own Piper 22 aircraft. He is married with three children and lives in London and Derbyshire.

Review:

"'Funny, warm and elegiac - Last of the Summer Wine meets A Year in Provence' Sir Ranulph Fiennes 'A masterpiece... had me crying with laughter' The Express"
