The clouds disappeared and gave us a clear day. No more excuses. No more newspapers, radio, beds, hot water, china mugs…Meet Barnie, 11 months old, dangerously learning to walk…Tess the dog, who likes rolling in smelly things…Ben the cart horse, who barely fits through a stile…Spud, a young mother recovering from cancer treatment, who wants to share with her motley family the joys of following old drovers' trails around the Cairngorm Mountains…and Rob, who abandons his stethoscope for an OS map to accompany her. Lively, funny and contemplative, "Small Steps" will inspire you to hit the road.
Spud Talbot-Ponsonby is also the author of Two Feet, Four Paws. She lives on a farm near Kelso in the Scottish Borders.
