  • A delightful account of an enthusiast's romp through history and his adopted country... Parks shows one simple which this troubled yet beautiful land and its constantly debated history can still offer nourishment

    Max Norman, Literary Review
  • Parks intertwines his travelogue with thought-provoking contemplation on leadership, history, memory, politics, idealism and the true meaning of love of country'... Parks's deep affection for Italy with all its implicit and compelling

    Jeremy Cliffe, New Statesman
  • Park's prose reflects the hot sun overhead, the hard stone underfoot; it spares none of the senses, and it makes for sympathetic reading... the reader gasps at Garibaldi's charisma and intelligence

    Harry Cochrane, Tablet
  • The Hero's Way is one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time. Following in Garibaldi's footsteps, Tim Parks recreates the thrilling history of his legendary escape from Rome in 1849. Elegantly written, full of wit and charm, this is travel writing at its very best
