Explore one of England's great landscapes in the company of the great writers with whom it is indelibly associated. In the style of Walking with Beatrix Potter and Walking with Wordsworth, Walking with the Brontë s is a pocket-sized book containing fifteen walking routes, predominantly in West Yorkshire.
Each walk is to somewhere associated with one or more of the Brontë family, either in real life or with important characters or places in their novels: for instance the house on which Emily based Thrushcross Grange in Wuthering Heights, or the countryside around Cowan Bridge School which, with its harsh regime, caused the Brontë girls much suffering and became Lowood School in Charlotte's Jane Eyre.
The walks are generally short and fairly easy, contrasting semi-urban areas with the wild moorland above their home at the Parsonage Haworth. Each route is fully described, aided by sketch plans, and illustrated by new colour photographs. In each case, a separate text explains the Bronte associations, with extracts from their writing.

Review:

I am sure [this book] will give us as much walking pleasure as the others did.



The Bronte's and their stories are so ingrained into our cultural psyche that we think we know them inside out - but walking in the footsteps of the literary greats and their characters offers a new perspective of their work.



There are stunning photographs that make the book not just a useful guide but as a keepsake and memory of the wonderful country you will see on the walks. A gem of a guide.

A small but highly polished book of 15 easy rambles, mostly circular, exploring places associated with the Brinte family. The text is knowedgeable and interesting, and interspersed with extracts from the sisters' own writing.
