From the cover: “In the spring of 1980 Oliver Knox set out to follow on foot the track of Garibaldi’s retreat from Rome over what is still a very beautiful and little visited part of Italy. The walk he describes is a long zigzag up Central Italy, along the foothills and over the high Apennines. The author’s experiences and encounters are interwoven with the story of the retreat from Rome to San Marino during the summer of 1849 after the fall of the short-lived Roman Republic. It is this awareness of people and the enjoyment of their welcome that gives especial delight to this enchanting account ofa long walk through out-of- the-way parts of Tuscany, Umbria and the Marches. Everyone who enjoys travelling in Italy will enjoy this book.”
