Description - Across the Territories by Kenneth White
An initial mapping of this book might say that it goes from the Orkneys to Polynesia via Scandinavia and the Baltic regions, the Iberian peninsula, and North America. But it's impossible to sum up the diverse pathways and
the multiple dimensions of Kenneth White's method in that highly original type of travel-writing he calls the waybook. The thing is to get out on the road with him.
