Wanderers: A History of Women Walking by Kerri Andrews

£14.99

Available

ISBN: 9781789143423 Category: Tags: ,

Description

A title about 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, like Sarah Stoddart Hazlitt, or pacing novels into being, as Virginia Woolf did around Bloomsbury.
