Musings on the subject of walking, hiking and climbing around the world, from literary figures such as Bill Bryson, Agatha Christie, Dickens, Defoe, Kipling and Orwell among many others.

Many of the most well-loved authors to have ever written had something to say on the subject of walking. In "The Walker's Anthology", compiler Deborah Manley has drawn from a diverse selection of writers including 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.

Brief biographies of all the writers quoted are included.



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.

Appealing to hikers and armchair travellers alike, this hardback book is a perfect gift for those who love the outdoors.
