Is walking a subversive act?
For the authors of WAYS OF WALKING, it can be. Some walk across forbidden lines, violating laws to seek freedom. Some walk to bear witness to social injustice.
Still others engage in a subtler subversion, violating the social norm of rapid, powered transportation to notice what fast travelers miss.
WAYS OF WALKING brings together 26 writers who reflect on walks they have taken and what they have discovered along the way.
Through walking, these authors become more attuned to the places they move across, more attentive to intricate ecologies and layered histories, and more connected to themselves as well.

Their small steps of rebellion lead to unexpected discoveries.
