Waterstones Says

A Norwegian explorer, Erling Kagge gained widespread notice for his debut book Silence: In the Age of Noise. Here, he returns with what is, in many ways, a companion love-letter to walking and the joy of discoveries made whilst walking. There are echoes of Henry David Thoreau in the way Kagge writes about landscape and the mind and his thought-provoking and considered book is a reminder of the healing, and even transformative, effects of nature for the mind and body.

 

An ode to the best remedy for body & mind from one of the world's leading explorers.

After having put my shoes on and let my thoughts wander, I am sure of one thing - to put one foot in front of the other is one of the most important things we do.

From the bestselling author of Silence comes an illuminating examination of the joy of walking.

From those perilous first steps as a toddler, to great expeditions, from walking to work to trekking to the North Pole, Erling Kagge explains that he who walks goes further and lives better.

Walking is a book about the love of exploration, the delight of discovery and the equilibrium that can be found in this most simple of activities.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A thought-proving and enjoyable book that revels in seeing the global in the local. Erling Kagge reveals new ways to view home and homo sapiens, and, as he travels leisurely, we grow slowly wiser.' - Tristan Gooley, author of The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs

'If you are a walker this book will resonate with you, if you have seldom or never walked this book should be compulsory reading' - Rosamund Young, author of The Secret Life of Cows

'Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer - or perhaps an adventurous philosopher' - The New York Times 

'Drawing on the experiences of Kagge's extraordinary life in wild places, this is a book of great concentration' - Robert Macfarlane, on Silence

'Fascinating' - The Times, on Silence
