Nine short, brilliant essays - covers an amazing amount of ground. Go on. Start walking. Get lost. Who knows what you'll find. * Guardian * A wonderful book,which becomes (marvellously) lost in itself ... her writing is so lucid and sympathetic, so interested in the world around her, that she never seems lost in her herself, or self-obsessed. * The Times * Rebecca Solnit is unquestionably one of the finest non-fiction writers of her generation. Possessed of eloquence and erudition in equal measure, her books have a wonderful capacity to lead the reader on unexpected and intriguing journeys ... As with Solnit's previous books, there is an emotional, even a polemical dimension to these ideas. It is a rare writer who can write so excitingly with both heart and head. * Scotsman * The book itself is a kind of wandering, and it is hard to say where we get to, but there are good things along the way. * Sunday Times * Like Simon Schama, Solnit is a cultural historian in the desert-mystic mode, trailing ideas like swarms of butterflies * Harper's Magazine * Radical, humane, witty, sometimes wonderfully dandyish, at other times, impassioned and serious -- Alain de Botton Fascinating, inspiring and beautifully written -- George Monbiot Flawless scintillating prose, writing it is impossible not to admire * Financial Times *
