This attractive, handy pocket book is bursting with great ideas for anyone who's ever laced a sturdy boot, packed a cheese and pickle sandwich, and put one foot in front of the other in search of stimulation, observation and contemplation. This wonderful compendium pulls together information from The Ramblers Association's own archives, a huge web survey, the literature of ages, and the rambling minds of walkers themselves.What would you do it you were charged by an elephant? What's the history behind Kendal mint cake? How do you pack a rucksack? Why did England's greatest essayist like to walk alone? Which soap characters should never have gone out for a walk? And, importantly, how do you ramble for sex?"The Walker's Pocket Companion" answers all these questions, and hundreds more.
