The Joy of Walking takes you on a journey with lots to surprise and enjoy along the way. Through the best of classic writing, this inspiring anthology shows how the simple act of walking goes to the heart of life itself.
Finding meaning in movement can be difficult in today’s frenetic world - something that feels like a very modern problem, has been explored and written about for centuries. Gaskell, Wordsworth and Whitman extol the virtues of walking in the countryside, be it on one’s own connecting with nature or as the means to really good conversation with friends. Others like Dickens and E. M. Forster explore the thrill and dangers of moving about the city, by day or by night. A wealth of essays, poetry and fiction celebrating and exploring the joy of walking, edited by Suzy Cripps.
