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 first general history of walking, Rebecca Solnit draws together many histories to create a range of possibilities for this most basic act. Arguing that walking as history means walking for pleasure and for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit homes in on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from the peripatetic philosophers of ancient Greece to the poets of the Romantic Age, from the perambulations of the Surrealists to the ascents of mountaineers. With profiles of some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction - from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Rousseau to Argentina's Mother of the Plaza de Mayo, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja - Wanderlust offers a provocative and profound examination of the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker.

This book documents the impulses that drive Elisabeth Eaves' insatiable hunger for the rush of the unfamiliar. She is both restless vagabond and astute observer as she crisscrosses five continents, chasing the exotic in both culture and romance. She loses herself in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, rekindles old love and new passion in Cairo, and finds an intinerant brotherhood of raucous men in the land Down Under. Like the random possessions she leaves in her wake, from Australia to Yemen, she also leaves behind a string of lovers. But this is about more than just sensual conquest; it is also a journey of self-discovery, in which her pursuit ultimately guides her home - back cover.

This book is the true story of my quest to live as a free spirit for a year of my life, mentally, physically and sexually. The year is 1975, I was 24 and I had abandoned a marriage and walked away from a secure job as a BBC make-up artist. Where in the modern world would I find the wide open horizons that I sought? How would I live? Would I share the adventure? The ocean, a boat and an open relationship provided my answers. Travelling with no fixed itinerary, no advance reservations, no return ticket and no fixed destination. We became true free spirits open to the dictionary's definition of adventure: 'one who lives on his wits. Risk. A remarkable happening.' My mood was at odds with the rest of the country. After the previous year's three day week, strikes and Harold Wilson's minority government, Britain was bracing itself for Denis Healey's tough new budget. I was about to sail away from all this, but what lay ahead could be much worse and certainly carried more risk. Restless, excited, optimistic and definitely naive I did it anyway. There is a phrase, "be careful what you wish for as it might come true"

From his birth in Greater London in a town called Leytonstone, England in 1887, follow his life as he runs away at a young age of fifteen to Canada. See and learn what he experiences as he starts his life-long work with the world's largest and oldest company, the Hudson Bay Company, which explored Canada and parts of the United States of America. See him as he travels across Canada, where he begins working in the wild, rough environment of the early 1900s trading with the Native Americans in outposts across northern Ontario. The story is based on the true-life journals of Sydney Taylor but the story is expounded on in such a fashionas to learn in detailabout the history and thegeography of everything he came into contact with. OfSydney Taylor, you can see from the beginning of the book that his life must have fashioned him into a person who would continually move to new places and,as such, hedeveloped a taste for travel or, as I call it, Wanderlust.
