FOR A LIMITED TIME—ALL COPIES SIGNED BY THE EDITOR AND UK'S "LAUREATE OF WALKING"—DUNCAN MINSHULL

In Globetrotting, Duncan Minshull, the UK’s “laureate of walking,” brings together the work of more than fifty walker-writers who have traveled the world’s seven continents by foot. From the 1500s to the present day comes a memorable band of explorers and adventurers, scientists and missionaries, pleasure-seekers, and literary drifters recalling their experiences and asking themselves a compelling question—why travel this way in the first place?

With contributions from Herman Melville, Edith Wharton, Mark Twain, Anthony Trollope, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Darwin, Vernon Lee, Sarah H. Bradford, Rabindranath Tagore, D. H. Lawrence, Isabella Bird, Katherine Mansfield, Rachel Carson, Helen Garner, Jean-Paul Clébert, Colin Thubron, William Boyd, Matsuo Bashō, and many more, Globetrotting takes us across the streets of London, Rome, Melbourne, Cairo, Kiev, and Kabu; through the frozen wastes of Antarctica; along the pilgrim paths of Japan; into the jungles of Ghana; and around the Great Wall of China.
