Just let your feet do the walking...
on 23 September 2010
Originally published in 1927 - This is the new edition published in 1931. Guide to the art of being a wanderer or tramp, travelling on foot without a planned route or sometimes without even any money. Includes advice on carrybags and boots, whether or not to carry money, friends met on the way, how to build a fire and make shift beds, scrounging, shelter, cooking, tobacco & reading material. He was classed as an oddity just up & going letting your feet do the walking, hiking and living off your wits. His manner of speech is a little old fashioned, but the manner the book is written is wonderful. I like to think of him as the first real pleasure hippy hiker, just walking for the sake of it, with pure enjoyment.
