Product Details


“Here is a book as certain to lift the spirits as the activity to which it is dedicated: going for a walk. Beneath My Feet is a collection of writings on pedestrianism, shrewdly selected by Duncan Minshull, who, as the editor of two previous books on the subject, is emerging as the laureate of walking.” —Andrew Martin, Country Life

“We at the Idler are great fans of Notting Hill Editions, an independent publisher of beautiful hardback essay collections. In Beneath My Feet: Writers on Walking, the latest addition to their catalogue, radio producer and editor Dunan Minshull brings together writing on walking from Petrarch to the present day. Follow in the footsteps of George Sand, Robert Louis Stevenson, Virginia Woolf, Will Self and others, and discover why they saw walking as key to their creativity and wellbeing. As St. Augustine puts it, ‘solvitur ambulando—it is solved by walking.'” —Idler

Praise for Duncan Minshull’s While Wandering: A Walking Companion

“A book to start your heart and feet beating for the road.” —The Times (London)  
Praise for The Burning Leg: Walking Scenes from Classic Fiction
“This wonderful little jewel collects extracts from Dickens and John Clare, George Eliot, Leo Tolstoy, D.H. Lawrence, Kipling, Kafka and many more. They are all here, from young ladies seeking to escape the confines of the drawing room, through flaneurs posing on city streets, to adventurers like Mark Twain and Jack London.” —Condé Nast Traveler
