One of my favorite books about walking is Miles Morland’s A Walk Across France. Bloomsbury Books, 1992 New York Times review
An out-of-shape British advertising executive and his French wife hoist rucksacks and walk towards the Atlantic Ocean from Gruissan-Plage near Narbonne on the Mediterranean to Capbreton, north of Bayonne, a distance of 553 km. Their route takes them along country roads and through farm villages. It’s hot and dusty, but they slake their thirst with lots of wine.
