Thinking on My Feet, Kate Humble
Thinking on My Feet is the diary of Kate Humble’s walking year. It highlights all the joy and wellbeing benefits that putting one foot in front of another brings, exploring the reasons why we walk and with reflections and insights to encourage readers to follow the same path out into the countryside.
Thinking on My Feet: The small joy of putting one foot in front of another, was shortlisted for the 2019 Wainwright Prize.
