Content

In the summer of 1849, Giuseppe Garibaldi, Italy’s legendary revolutionary hero, fled Rome and led 4,000 of his men hundreds of miles through Umbria and Tuscany, then across the Apennines, Italy’s mountainous spine, toward the refuge of the Venetian Republic. After thirty-two exhausting days of skirmishes and adventures, only 250 survivors reached the Adriatic coast.

This hair-raising journey is brought vividly to life by bestselling author Tim Parks, who in the blazing summer of 2019, followed in Garibaldi’s footsteps. A fascinating portrait of Italy past and present, The Hero’s Way is a celebration of determination, creativity and desperate courage.
