Walking is as natural to us as breathing and almost every author who has ever written has had something to say on the subject. In this fascinating anthology, Deborah Manley has drawn on the writings of more than 50 literary figures from around the world – Bill Bryson, Agatha Christie, Charles Dickens, Daniel Defoe, Peter Fleming, Rudyard Kipling, Patrick Leigh Fermor, Eric Newby, George Orwell, JB Priestley, Bayard Taylor, Robert Louis Stevenson, HD Thoreau, Colin Thubron and Mark Twain among many others. The book is divided into 10 themed chapters – Setting Out, Through Countryside, Processions and Marches, Pilgrimages and Walking for Work, Walking in Winter, On Hills and Mountains, Walking in Parks and Gardens, Walking by Water, Walking in Towns and Cities and Walking at Night.
