From the Publisher:

Walking is a fundamental act, often taken for granted, yet through the centuries it has inspired a fascinating literature. This, the first comprehensive anthology on the subject, delves into why we walk and how we walk; the differences between the country hike and the city stroll; walking and wooing; walking into trouble and marching out. A mix of fiction and non–fiction, poetry and drama, The Vintage Book of Walking offers the reader over 200 booted authors. Xenophon and Dante, Twain and Thoreau, Woolf and Wilde: all tramp the pages of this unique omnibus.

From the Inside Flap:

This collection of writings on walking - fiction and non-fiction, poetry and drama from over 200 authors - delves into why we walk and how we walk, the country hike and the city stroll, walking and wooing, walking into trouble and marching out, and many other types of walks. Xenophon and Baudelaire, Flora Thompson and Julian Barnes, Mark Twain and Roberto Calasso are just a few of the writers tramping through the pages of this fascinating collection.
