Teaser Tuesdays: Walking Distance

We've chosen these trails as our favorites and to represent the great diversity of long distance walking. These trails are found on six continents, represent fourteen countries, and range from cultural landscapes like Cinque Terre and El Camino De Santiago to wilderness walks like the John Muir Trail and the Kungsleden, and a vast spectrum in between.

-- Walking Distance: Extraordinary Hikes for Ordinary People by Robert and Martha Manning.

This books has me planning hiking vacations enough to fill up several decades.  It is wonderful. And would make a great gift.

Walking Distance is oversized and full of gorgeous pictures of hiking trails all over the world. The husband/wife authors describe the hikes and the amenities (or lack of) along the routes. It is the perfect combination of practical guide and inspiration.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event. 


  1. This one sounds lovely. I'm afraid I would treat it like I do cookbooks, i.e. like to look at the pictures but have no intention of cooking the dish (or taking the hike.) My teasers this week are from Hattie Ever After by Kirby Larson and Die for Me by Cynthia Eden. Happy reading!

  2. This sounds like a terrific book. I walked a portion of the Camino de Santiago (from Leon to Santiago) several years ago and have hoped to someday take more long walks. Maybe this book will inspire me to get in shape and do it!
    My Teaser is from SCARLET NIGHTS.

  3. I've always been so intrigued by long distance hiking/walking, but my wimpiness about carrying lots of weight holds me back. I need a pack mule and I'd be good to go!
