The Joy Of Walking
A wealth of essays, poetry and fiction which celebrates the joy of putting one foot in front of the other. Some writers, like Gaskell, Wordsworth and Whitman, extol the virtues of walking in the countryside, whether on one’s own connecting with nature or as the means to enjoying conversation with friends. Others like Dickens and E. M. Forster explore the thrill of moving about the city, by day or by night. Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library, edited and introduced by Suzy Cripps.
