'A passionate affirmation of the simple life, and joy in simple things. And it's beautifully written: clear, simple, precise.' - Observer

'Poignant life-stories ... are interspersed with the author's own meditations on walking ... In the way a landscape is gradually absorbed by the long-distance rambler they steadily build into an insistent exhortation: get up, get out and walk!' - Independent

'Life-affirming stuff.' - National Geographic Traveler

'Impressive.' - Daily Telegraph

'Philosopher Gros ponders walking, that most mundane mode of transportation or exercise, elevating it to its rightful place in inspiring creativity, evoking freedom, and quieting a troubled soul.' - Booklist

'This elegant book inspires consideration of an oft-overlooked subject.' - Publisher's Weekly

'Frédéric Gros asks why so many of our most productive writers and philosophers - Rousseau, Kant, Rimbaud, Robert Louis Stevenson, Nietzsche, Jack Kerouac - have also been indefatigable walkers ... there are certain magical things that happen on the trail, and Gros is familiar with them. He thinks like a hiker.'- Financial Times

'An admirable little book which will delight even the most sedentary.'- Le Monde

'An unclassifiable book in which ideas are illuminated by the bright light of the morning.'- L'Express
