Arguing that the history of walking includes walking for pleasure as well as for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit (author of Men Explain Things to Me) focuses on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from Wordsworth to Jane Austen’s Elizabeth Bennet. Solnit argues for the necessity of preserving the time and space in which to walk in our ever more car-dependent and accelerated world.
