By Buck Niehoff

On the orders of Emperor Hadrian in 122 AD, a great wall was constructed, coast to coast, across northern England. Separating the tribes in what is now Scotland from the Roman occupied area of Great Britain, this massive structure was one of the glories of the Empire. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes a path along its 84-mile length. Walking this trail to celebrate his seventieth birthday, the author shares the camaraderie of his three companions and other hikers, including a couple of dogs, who join them along the way. He struggles over the unexpectedly rugged, desolate terrain and discovers the spiritual magic of the hiking trail that clarifies the transition to his seventh decade.
