‘A book to start your heart and feet beating for the road’ The Times
With its stories of strolling, poems about pavement-pounding and wonderings on wandering, this is the indispensable collection for the flâneur and the rambler – and everyone in between.
Take a turn with Jane Austen, stride side by side with Colm Tóibín, let restless William Wordsworth lead you through brook and road before a detour with Stella Gibbons to the park.Whether mountaineering with Mark Twain or visiting Oxford Street with Julian Barnes – be sure to take this anthology with you on your ambulations.
With a new foreword by Robert Macfarlane.
Previously published with the title The Vintage Book of Walking
