Harold Fry would be the first to admit that he could have been better prepared. He had no walking boots nor map, let alone a compass or a mobile phone. The least planned part of his journey, however, was the journey itself. Leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, Harold nipped out to post a letter. He had no idea he was going to walk from one end of the country to the other until he started. Wrestling with his past, not to mention the weather and all manner of strangers, Harold Fry is going to walk over five hundred miles in yachting shoes. And he is going to save a life.
