This breathtaking book offers time travel and exercise (or at least mental exercise, if you prefer to experience these walks while relaxing in your armchair)! Showing how history “enriches every ramble,” travel writer Sarah Baxter presents 500 treks (of varying length and difficulty) from around the globe, many with gorgeous photos, basic trail maps, and helpful travel tips, and all with fascinating historical details of the area. From Mount Roraima (“scale Venezuela's prehistoric tabletop mountain—via tangled jungle, slippery slopes, and strange endemic species”), to Nakasendo Way (“hike from Kyoto to Tokyo, following the original old stones of a historic highway”), to Alta Via 1 ("cross the jagged Dolomites range for spectacular views and World War I relics), these are all amazing journeys for adventurous walkers and/or history buffs.
