From the bestselling author of Silence comes an illuminating examination of the joy of walking.

From those perilous first steps as a toddler, to great expeditions, from walking to work to trekking to the North Pole, Erling Kagge explains that he who walks goes further and lives better.

Reviews for Walking: One Step at a Time

Part rumination, part walking coach and companion . . . and one that might just do more for your health and happiness than your treadmill alone ever could * New York Journal of Books * [Walking is] much more subtle than a typical self-help . . . Erling Kagge uses his acquaintance with extreme environments to reflect on the mental and physical benefits of walking * Economist * Fascinating * The Times, on Silence * Drawing on the experiences of Kagge's extraordinary life in wild places, this is a book of great concentration * Robert Macfarlane, on Silence * A thoughtful book-length essay on a taken-for-granted human activity. * Kirkus * Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer - or perhaps an adventurous philosopher * New York Times * 'If you are a walker this book will resonate with you, if you have seldom or never walked this book should be compulsory reading' -- Rosamund Young, author of 'The Secret Life of Cows' A thought-proving and enjoyable book that revels in seeing the global in the local. Erling Kagge reveals new ways to view home and homo sapiens, and, as he travels leisurely, we grow slowly wiser. -- Tristan Gooley, author of 'The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs'
