I liked the book. A bit rambling. I should have taken longer to read the book carefully. I gave up half way through the book. Maybe I will pick it up in the future.

A microhistory for anyone who loves to take in the world on foot.

Winter may not be the best time to set out on a stroll but if you brave the cold you’ll be rewarded by the meditative quality of a good walk. Rebecca Solnit’s Wanderlust is the perfect companion for all your small and large journeys.
