Just like the best walks, The Joy of Walking takes you on a journey with lots to surprise and enjoy along the way. Through the best of classic writing, this inspiring anthology shows how the simple act of walking goes to the heart of life itself.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning pocket size classics, this edition is edited and introduced by Suzy Cripps.

Whether walking through awe-inspiring countryside or weaving your way through crowds in the hustle and bustle of great cities, we take thousands of steps a day. Finding meaning in movement can be difficult in today’s frenetic world. This may seem like a modern problem, but putting one foot in front of the other is something that authors have been writing about for centuries. Some like Gaskell, Wordsworth and Whitman extol the virtues of walking in the countryside, be it on one’s own connecting with nature or as the means to really good conversation with friends. Others like Dickens and E. M. Forster explore the thrill and dangers of moving about the city, by day or by night.

In The Joy of Walking you’ll find a wealth of essays, poetry and fiction celebrating and exploring the joy of walking.

Wilderness Trekking Oman - Map - Western Hajar Mountains (Sheet map, folded): John Edwards Wilderness Trekking Oman - Map - Western Hajar Mountains (Sheet map, folded)
John Edwards
R290 Discovery Miles 2 900 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

This map is a practical addition to the guide for hiking in the Western Hajar, which is the western portion of the main mountain range in the Sultanate of Oman. The best walking weather in Oman is from mid-November to March. The traverse follows the spine of the mountains in a point-to-point walk taking sixteen days. It consists of eight one-day walks, two two-day walks and one four-day walk. There is a road intersection with a village or hotel between each of these eleven sections making it practical to walk sections rather than the full traverse. The track climbs to the highest accessible peak in the country at 2999m and finishes in remote dry valleys, called wadis, where impregnable cliffs have precluded road construction and electricity transmission. This has preserved the Arabian mountain lifestyle that has existed for centuries. This traverse is for hikers who are competent with GPS navigation, as only six of the sixteen day tracks are marked. There are two shorter options, of which one has two chain ladders that do not require ropes. These options together reduce the traverse to twelve days or make two multi-day circuits, one with hotels and the other entirely in the wilderness. A loop in the traverse can be used to make another three-day wilderness circuit, or can be skipped altogether to further reduce the traverse duration to nine days. In Oman there are no mountain rangers, so this traverse is for experienced hikers who are comfortable looking after themselves. I have selected the route over many years by linking ancient and current donkey trading and walking tracks. Exploring the Hajar Mountains with his family and Omani companions was John Edwards' passion during the sixteen years he spent living in Oman. His ambition with this project is to resurrect the historic trading routes connecting the mountain villages, enabling walking tourists to help sustain an emerging hospitality industry that uses some of the ancient village houses as hotel rooms, which otherwise will fall into ruin.

This guidebook presents 30 walks in the New Forest in Hampshire and Wiltshire, Britain's smallest National Park. Easily accessible from Southampton, Bournemouth, Salisbury and Winchester, the New Forest encompasses varied landscapes, from ancient woodlands to open heaths, rivers and coastline. Routes of between 5 and 16km (3 and 10 miles) explore the Forest, mainly on fairly flat terrain, often on well-defined tracks and paths. Most walks are suitable for all the family and many can be combined to make longer outings. Each walk is described in detail, highlighting the many points of interest in this area - ancient sites and castles, picture postcard villages with thatched cottages or historic churches - with fascinating background detail. An extract of 1:25,000 OS mapping makes each route easy to follow, and suggestions for refreshment stops like pubs and tea rooms are included. All walks offer a good chance of seeing wildlife, including the famous New Forest ponies. This area has been protected and nurtured by ancient laws for over 900 years, and is the largest remaining area of lowland heath in Europe. It is this sense of history and the unique patchwork of habitats that make walking in the New Forest National Park such a rewarding experience.

The Cairngorms cover 300 sq miles, making it the most mountainous area in Britain, with an equally wide range of wildlife. The native pine forest, one of the final retreats of the red squirrel, supports small, uncommon birds like crested tits, redwings and crossbills. Loch Garten is the RSPB osprey breeding site where in summer the birds fly over a considerable tract of country in search of food. In scenic contrast, there is also an ascent to the summit of Carn Daimh, part of the Speyside Way, with its splendid panorama of the countryside surrounding Glenlivet.

First published in 1998 when it was picked out as "The Sunday Times" 'Travel Book of the Week' and awarded 'Highly Commended' in the Lakeland Book of the Year awards, "The Inn Way...to the English Lake District" has been rewalked, revised and updated for this new 2nd Edition, which is published in spring 2011.

Although deep in South Wales, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire have a strong English influence, but their most striking feature, from the point of view of the walker, is that they contain some of the most spectacular coastal scenery and finest stretches of coast path in Britain. Although the walks in this guide inevitably concentrate on the coast, especially using the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, their characters vary considerably, ranging from the splendid cliff scenery around the peninsula of Dinas Island and to the west of Port-Eynon Bay, to the wooded stretches between Saundersfoot and Tenby. Inland, and by way of contrast, the Preseli hills offer a splendid ridge walk.

From 1969 to 1979 Overend Watts recorded and toured extensively with Mott The Hoople, Mott, and British Lions before shunning the limelight and turning his hand to record producing, gentlemen's hairdressing (briefly!), and dealing in antiques. At this point, however, most of his spare time was spent in the pursuit of large carp and he became a well-known figure on the gravel pits around the London area, where he always used luminous pink carp rods, so his mates, and the carp, could locate him easily! After a few years of antique fairs and auctions he concentrated on recycling and painting furniture and restoring antiques before opening a large "retro" department store in Hereford, which proved popular with customers from both Great Britain and abroad, with its specialist clothing, unusual antiquities, instruments, and rare music. After leaving the retro store in February 2003, Overend then aged 55, and The Man Who Hated Walking, attempted the S.W Coast Path National Trail - the greatest challenge of his life - all 650 miles of it. Or in Overend's case, more like 680 miles as he frequently got lost over the two months it took him to achieve this incredible feat of endurance.The Man Who Hated Walking, Overend's first book is a wonderful document of this amazing achievement, which is explored and described with more than a smattering of his macabre humour. Although undoubtedly a book that all Mott The Hoople fans will want, it is also an essential read for the walking fraternity, and is a massive inspiration for anyone who has the urge to do some serious walking.
