Review

Delightful...Solnit covers all kinds of ground in her inspiring book on walking. —The Seattle Times

Solnit is an elegant essayist...as a guide, she knows the path well; she is tireless and sure-footed. —The New York Times



-Solnit is an elegant essayist . . . [she] joyfully trespasses across disciplines and genres, tracing a path through philosophy, paleontology, politics, religion, and literary criticism.-
--The New York Times
-A tour de force . . . Solnit, a writer of unflagging grace, has a remarkable ability to wrest meaning from the mundane.-
--San Francisco Chronicle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

'Solnit walks, but her prose soars. This is a stunningly original account of the simple, subversive activity that keeps us human. Pedestrians of the world, unite!' Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz

'Through landscapes of pleasure, over the hills and dales of politics, Wanderlust is a long, sweet walk through history in very good company. With her unique combination of erudition, lyricism, and irreverence, Rebecca Solnit has written a book for those who trespass with both mind and body.' Lucy R Lippard, author of On the Beaten Track: Tourism, Art and Place

'Solnit certainly knows her subject, as some famous and not so famous walkers move across the page. She knows how and where they move. She knows why they take to the road in the first place. It's a pleasure and an education to follow them.' Duncan Minshull, editor of The Vintage Book of Walkin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
