After coming terrifyingly close to suicide, Jake Tyler was determined to take back control of his life from the clutches of depression.
With only a pair of walking boots and a backpack, he left his home town of Maldon and began a 3000-mile walk around the British mainland. In documenting every step of his adventure, Jake shares the ways in which his road to recovery was enhanced by the kindness of strangers, who helped him to better understand himself and the power of human connection.
This is the story of Jake's journey around the UK, and of his journey to finding peace within himself and the world around him.
