Sobre o livro
A History of Walking. What does it mean to be out walking in the world, whether in a landscape or a metropolis, on a pilgrimage or a protest march? In this, the first general history of walking, Rebecca Solnit draws together many histories to create a range of possibilities for this most basic art. With profiles of some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction, 'Wanderlust' offers a provocative and profound examination of the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker.
