Wanderers: A History of Women Walking

Wanderers: A History of Women Walking

  • £999

By Kerri Andrews, this book describes ten women over the past three hundred years who have found walking essential to their sense of themselves, as people and as writers. Wanderers traces their footsteps, from eighteenth-century parson's daughter Elizabeth Carter — who desired nothing more than to be taken for a vagabond in the wilds of southern England — to modern walker-writers such as Nan Shepherd and Cheryl Strayed. For each, walking was integral, whether it was rambling for miles across the Highlands or pacing novels into being. A beguiling view of the history of walking, Wanderers guides us through the different ways of seeing and being, articulated by these ten pathfinding women.

Paperback. 304 pages. Published by Reaktion Books.
