1001 WALKS YOU MUST TAKE BEFORE YOU DIE by Barry Stone

While the underlying conceit of this book and the whole bucket list genre and current cultural preoccupation creeps me out(perhaps its the latest iteration of books with the subtext,”….for Dummies”)— 1001 WALKS YOU MUST TAKE BEFORE YOU DIE (Universe/Rizzoli may be special case. As I have recently discovered walking to be a multi faceted pleasure — fearing an adult onset condition known as sitting-around-all-day {SAAD).I discovered bipedal locomotion a reasonable way to get the heart pumping without having to resort to a membership in one of those ubiquitous temples of narcissism. And best of all, is the opportunity to rediscover the wonders of this world, the only world we have and will have.

1000 Walksis a substantial volume (as in thick) and as the publisher notes, a wide-ranging compendium including, “country hikes, heritage trails, coastal strolls, mountain paths, and city walks from around the globe.”

Did I mention the pretty pictures?
