Stephen Graham ´ The Gentle Art of Tramping READER

C works in affordable high uality modern editions using the original text and artwo First off the title may be a little misleading This book was published in the 1920's so substitute 'Hiking' for 'Tramping' and you get an idea of the bookIt was an enjoyable book overall with some interesting advice even if some of it is out of date for example the author talks about bringing a tweed jacket with you on you hike He also mentions bringing a shirt collar and a tie with you for when you need to go into a post office a police station or need to deal with a priest A great novelty book It started to go off on a bit of a tangent near the end but it kept the readers interest

DOC Ô The Gentle Art of Tramping ´ Stephen Graham

The Gentle Art of TrampingMany of the earliest books particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before a America has its hobos and the UK has always had its tramps; men who walked the lanes and roads of our country Graham sees these as vagabonds and outlaws What he considers as tramping is a gentle and meditative style of walking that you take as much time as you need to enjoy the walk and you are friend of society a seeker of the unexpected and someone who travels light Know how to meet your fellow wanderer how to be passive to the beauty of nature and to be active to its wildness and its rigour Tramping brings one to realityIf you are considering taking to the lanes of the UK then Graham has lots of advice for you There are chapters on what boots to wear carrying money lighting a fire drying off after rain what to carry in a knapsack the tobacco to take and that the book to take when walking should be one that you are just on the cusp of making your own From day to day you keep your log your day book of the soul and you may think at first that it is a mere record of travel and facts; but something else will be entering into it poetry the new poetry of your lifeIt is a book very much of its time but then it was first published in 1927 Some of the advice isn’t relevant now but as you read it you can find gems that still are relevant to walking and enjoying the outside world today Things like enjoy the time taken and not concern yourself with the distance covered tramping is about earning happiness not money and the less you spend the you will experience I thought it was a charming little book and I really love the endpapers too which are reproductions of his notebooks Mostly it is a reminder that it is often the journey that matters than the destination
