A blend of memoir, travelogue and long-forgotten history, the book reflects on the most fundamental way of connecting with the outdoors: the simple act of walking.  Share the nature experiences of Nan Shepherd in the mountains of Scotland, Georgia O’Keefe in New Mexico, Daphne du Maurier along the River Rhone and Simone de Beauvoir in the hills and mountains of France.  Named a Smithsonian Top Ten Best Book about Travel for 2021.
