Lessons by Foot
Although this book is long out of print (1967), it is without argument an essential book for anyone of the walking persuasion. The authors give a delightful presentation of all the postive facets of the walking lifestyle. From the "pyschological magic" of walking to the "science and art" of walking, the authors don't miss a step. Explaining the subtelies and benefits of walking from a varied and vast plethora of world views, the "Magic of Walking," is complete in both its study of walking and its lessons on walking. Suitably accompanied by a ramble through the literature of walking itself, including such works by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Vladimir Nabakov, Thomas Mann and Charles Dickens, among other notable writers. This collection, opening with the creme de la creme of walking literature, Walt Whitman's "Song of the Open Road," gives the reader an even further and greater insight into the historical and phisophical aspects of walking. Anyone wanting to escape, not only by means of a walk, but by means of an accomplished book on walking, should not even breath a sigh of doubt or hesitation. As Emerson stated, with a blunt apparency that cannot be denied, "Society is always taken by surprise at any new example of common sense." This book is a fine example thereof.
