"Wanderlust: A History of Walking" by Rebecca Solnit

Drawing together many histories — from anatomical evolution to city design, from treadmills to labyrinths, from walking clubs to sexual mores — Rebecca Solnit creates a fascinating portrait of the range of possibilities presented by walking.

Arguing that such a history includes walking for pleasure as well as for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit focuses on both pedestrian and extreme walkers, exploring how their ambulatory passions have singularly shaped our culture.
