    Book details

This attractive, handy pocket book is bursting with great ideas for anyone who's ever laced a sturdy boot, packed a cheese and pickle sandwich, and put one foot in front of the other in search of stimulation, observation and contemplation. This wonderful compendium pulls together information from The Ramblers Association's own archives, a huge web survey, the literature of ages, and the rambling minds of walkers themselves.What would you do it you were charged by an elephant? What's the history behind Kendal mint cake? How do you pack a rucksack? Why did England's greatest essayist like to walk alone? Which soap characters should never have gone out for a walk? And, importantly, how do you ramble for sex?"The Walker's Pocket Companion" answers all these questions, and hundreds more.

Malcolm Tait is the editor of the 'Companion' series, and of 'Wildlife Walks'. He is editor of the magazines 'Conserver' and 'Butterfly' and contributes regular wildlife columns to national magazines. He is based in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Review Text

  • By A. P. S on 20 May 2009

    A really interesting little book with all sorts of anecdotes about the great outdoors. Not to be taken as a serious outdoor book. Fun to dip in and out of for quick reads.Nicely presented and good quality. Great as a gift.

  • By Mrs. J. D. Harper on 28 July 2015

    I bought this book as a jokey birthday gift for a friend because his name is Walker. Unfortunately the book is actually printed on the cover "Travellers Pocket Companion", and therefore not much use to me. At the price it's not worth returning, so will be heading for the nearest charity shop.

    Evidently an end of line product the booklet is a most useful and informative book. As a small present for gardening friends at an absurd price it is invaluable.
