Wanderers


-
Add to Calendar Europe/Paris Wanderers

This is a book about ten women over the past three hundred years who have found walking essential to their sense of themselves, as people and as writers. ‘Wanderers’ traces their footsteps, from eighteenth-century parson’s daughter Elizabeth Carter – who desired nothing more than to be taken for a vagabond in the wilds of southern England – to modern walker-writers such as Nan Shepherd and Cheryl Strayed. For each, walking was integral, whether it was rambling for miles across the Highlands, like Sarah Stoddart Hazlitt, or pacing novels into being, as Virginia Woolf did around Bloomsbury.
