Royal Geogrpahical Society with IBG presents
Hugh recounts his coast-to-coast journey from the Lake District to the Yorkshire Moors with his mule Jethro. For centuries mules were used to transport goods across Britain. Strong, sturdy and able to carry a great deal of weight, they made ideal walking companions – as long as you didn’t ask them to do anything they didn’t want to do!
Now Wainwright-Prize winner Hugh Thomson revives that ancient tradition, using his experience of hiking with pack mules across the Andes to have what he calls ‘a South American adventure in England’.
