Walking is simple, but it can also be profound. In an increasingly complex and frantic world, walking can help simplify and focus our lives, is an elegantly sustainable form of recreation, deepens our understanding and appreciation of the world’s great cultural landscapes, stimulates our thinking, and makes us healthier and happier in the process.

In Walks of a Lifetime from Around the World, Bob and Martha Manning invite readers to join the walking community. Their book explains why, how, and where to walk, with an emphasis on multi-day, long-distance trails — walking vacations of a few days to a few weeks. The heart of the book is a series of first-hand descriptions of forty of the world’s great multi-day walks, spanning six continents, most U.S. states and Washington, DC, and ranging from inn-to-inn walks to backpacking treks. Many of these walks are among the world’s most iconic. Trail descriptions are richly illustrated with color photographs and maps.
