Description

This latest collection of walking literature from Notting Hill Editions celebrates the allure of the Continent.

On foot the world comes our way. We get close to the Continent s alpine ranges, arterial rivers, expansive coastlines. Close to its ancient cities and mysterious thoroughfares; and close to the walkers themselves - the Grand Tourers and explorers, strollers and saunterers, on their hikes and quests, parades and urban drifts.

Sauntering features sixty walker-writers - classic and current - who roam Europe by foot. Twenty-two countries are traversed. We join Henriette D Angeville, the second woman to climb Mont Blanc; Nellie Bly roaming the trenches of the First World War; Werner Herzog on a personal pilgrimage through Germany; Hans Christian Andersen in quarantine; Joseph Conrad in Cracow; Rebecca Solnit re-imagining change on the streets of Prague; and Robert Macfarlane dropping deep into underground Paris.
