Foreword by Geoff Nicholson, author of The Lost Art of Walking, The Miranda, and Bleeding London
Similar to the popular trends of hygge and forest bathing, the book reflects the Norwegian philosophy of Friluftsliv (fresh air life), which encourages everyone to live actively in nature for health and to preserve the environment.
6 in 10 people make walking a part of their lifestyle, either for transportation, relaxation, exercise, or for activities such as walking the dog
Distinct from many books about walking and relatable to a wide audience, as the author does not travel long distances, but instead focuses on the wonder of knowing a small area intimately and drawing joy from noticing small changes overtime
Will appeal to fans of the recent award-winning bestsellers Underland by Robert Macfarlane and H is for Hawk by Helen MacDonald
