Description

From prehistory to the present day, take a grand tour of world events at eye-level perspective with accounts that combine knowledgeable commentary with practical detail. You may even be inspired to lace up your own boots! From geologic upheavals and mad kings to trade routes and saints' ways, this book relates the tales behind the top 500 walks that have shaped our society. It's easy to imagine travelling back in time as you read about convicts and conquistadors, silk traders and Buddhists who have hiked along routes for purposes as varied as the terrain they covered.
