With her children flying the nest and retirement age approaching, Megan Knoyle Lewis, one of the UK’s leading pony breeders, determines to fulfil her lifelong dream of completing a long ride. Inspired by the handover of the Olympic Games, she sets out to travel from Beijing to London – the first leg of a journey which will lead to her becoming the first person to travel around the world on horseback! In 2008, armed with months of research and her unbreakable spirit, she flies to China to begin the first phase of this epic undertaking. In the Shadow of the Great Wall follows Megan and her various companions, both two and four-legged, as they walk, lope, and trot in history’s footsteps from one end of the Ming Great Wall to the other. Filled with entertaining anecdotes, charming observations, and intriguing historical tales, Megan’s story is tough, honest, and sure to leave readers feeling awed and inspired.
