Availability: Ready to download

It was 2008 when the author took the first intrepid steps from Minehead, in Somerset, heading for Poole in Dorset, six hundred and thirty miles away. Walking the path was a meditation, with nothing to think about except facing and overcoming the challenges presented day by day, whether by the terrain or the weather. Even in the most remote and inaccessible places she felt It was 2008 when the author took the first intrepid steps from Minehead, in Somerset, heading for Poole in Dorset, six hundred and thirty miles away. Walking the path was a meditation, with nothing to think about except facing and overcoming the challenges presented day by day, whether by the terrain or the weather. Even in the most remote and inaccessible places she felt safe and at one with the land. They gave her the space and the silence to explore and develop the stories that were taking shape in her mind. When asked for the genre of these tales, Jo explained they were like the contents of those bags of sweets called ‘Lucky Bags’ that she was passionate about as a child. Like those bags, this is a ‘Lucky Bag of Tales’ — a mixture of gruesome murder, ghostly tales, sentient landscapes and wartime dramas. It was the landscape that dictated the sort of story needing to be told. Some of the stories embrace the dark side of religion and spiritual beliefs. Yet others are of the genre magical realism where creatures, usually invisible to humankind, make themselves known to those open to the possibility of their reality. The places in which these twenty eight stories are set, are factual. The people, however, are fictitious. That is fortunate because you really wouldn’t want to meet any of them on some of the more remote sections of the path. At the end of each story, there is additional information and explanation about the origins of the tale. These have been added for interest and background information.This collection of stories will inform and entertain, not only walkers on the path, but also those open to exploring the hidden realms of human existence through the landscape. Perhaps they will entice the reader to walk at least some sections of this amazing long distance trail. If they do, please stay vigilant, for now that the characters have been given life in these stories, they will live in the landscape forever. The stories in this book were originally published in four separate volumes and for those only interested in one section of the path, these are still in publication.
