    In his anthology of 'pedestrian literature', Duncan Minshull begins with why we walk and how to walk (a section that includes Wilkie Collins's advice on avoiding blisters), and includes walkers of every era and inclination, from Cyrus' March of the Ten Thousand described by Xenophon to Patrick Leigh Fermor on the dangers of reciting verse along the way. First published in 2000 as The Vintage Book of Walking, the book is reissued with a new foreword by Robert Macfarlane.
