"Drawing together many histories-of anatomical evolution and city design, of treadmills and labyrinths, of walking clubs and sexual mores-Rebecca Solnit creates a fascinating portrait of the range of possibilities presented by walking. Arguing that the history of walking includes walking for pleasure as well as for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit focuses on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from philosophers to poets to mountaineers." --Amazon
Ok. Ok. I've been on a Rebecca Solnit kick. This particular book of hers I am currently reading has once again captured a sense of thought I have. --How walking helps me to think through my life. I feel more connected to humanity by reading of other walker's life journeys. I also enjoy Solnits style of writing. It clicks with my particular thought process.
