"A book to start your heart and feet beating for the road". (The Times). With its stories of strolling, poems about pavement-pounding and wonderings on wandering, this is the indispensable collection for the flaneur and the rambler - and everyone in between. Take a turn with Jane Austen, stride side by side with Colm Toibin, let restless William Wordsworth lead you through brook and road before a detour with Stella Gibbons to the park. Whether mountaineering with Mark Twain or visiting Oxford Street with Julian Barnes - be sure to take this anthology with you on your ambulations. With a new foreword by Robert Macfarlane. It is previously published with the title The Vintage Book of Walking.
