Review:

According to Colin Fletcher, walking can become an addiction. But it can also be therapy; he sometimes walks "along (a) ridge in order to think uncluttered thoughts or to feel with accuracy, or to sweat away a hangover, or to achieve some other worthy end." His guide touches on the spiritual but also gets down to brass tacks with a grandfather's authority. Heavy with specifics, Fletcher suggests which socks to wear and how to choose a boot based on one of the four available lacing options. He'll tell you how to pack the "house on your back," and he'll even tell you how to walk (yes, there is a proper technique to efficient walking). But Fletcher isn't an academic; his style is soothing and funny. And he'll tell you that above all, you shouldn't take your technique too seriously--walking is supposed to be fun. --Benjamin Tiffany

From the Inside Flap:

Filled with first-hand knowledge and sage advice on prices, quality and availability of equipment, changes in the backcountry, and the state of mind that Fletcher captures as no one else has. Another classic.
