Paper back in good condition

Ramblers play a comforting role in the British imagination. We like to think of them plodding steadily through the countryside, anoraked and big-booted, healthy and harmless. Many of us are aware, if dimly, that their steadfast perambulations reflect the partially positive outcome of a long struggle between our country's privileged classes and the rest of us over our right to walk through our homeland.

Sinclair McKay aims to convey the essence of this story through visits to some of the often inspiring places in which it has been acted out. Thus he goes to the Lake District to discover how Wordsworth, Coleridge and Keats changed the perception of wild uplands from places to avoid to theatres for the exploration of the human psyche. He goes to Box Hill in Surrey in the footsteps of the Sunday Tramps, a middle-class walking group seeking to escape the dreary 19th-century Sabbath who dared each other to trespass.
