Wanderers: A History of Women Walking

A wild portrayal of the passion and spirit of female walkers and the deep sense of knowing that they found along the path. 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 like Sarah Stoddart Hazlitt, or pacing novels into being, as Virginia Woolf did around Bloomsbury. Offering a beguiling view of the history of walking, Wanderers guides us through the different ways of seeing and of being articulated by these ten pathfinding women.
