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 Clebert, Colin Thubron, William Boyd, Matsuo Basho, 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.
Industry Reviews

'Fifty writers recount their journeys by foot in this delightful compendium ... Hikers, explorers, and those seeking contemplative journeys will be inspired.'

* Publishers Weekly *

'Duncan Minshull's slender gem-filled volume is a welcome reminder to look up; to gaze into the faces of passers-by, to turn my view to the tops of buildings I've walked past hundreds of times, but never actually looked at.'

* Reader's Digest *

'An evocative portrait of the joys and inner awakenings that travel can arouse.'

* Times Literary Supplement *
