Hit The Road, Gals

Travel back in time to the vibrant 1960s...

Join Bridget and her friends, students at the Hereford College of Education, as they dare to defy convention and hitchhike their way through an era of change.

Armed with sixpenny Esso road maps and thumbing rides from friendly lorry drivers, they journey through Wales, Scotland and onwards to London.  Venturing abroad, they find themselves enchanted by the romance of France, navigate landscapes fraught with both beauty and danger, fend off proposals of marriage on the back of a lorry travelling through the Atlas Mountains, and revel in the soul-stirring folk music of Ireland.

 Hit the Road, Gals, captures a time when the roads were open, the spirits were free and a group of daring young women carved their own path through a world in transition.

 Hit the Road, Gals is part of The Hay Girl Trilogy.

“Ironic, funny and daring” Max Adams, author of Unquiet Women
