Writer and academic Kerri Andrews has recently written Wanderers: A History of Women Walking that challenges the male-dominated history of walking. Drawing on her own experience of hill walking and through research, she has written a compelling book that includes intriguing stories about women walkers since the early 18th century. She focused on women writers who reflected on what walking meant to them, many of whom have been overlooked or ignored.

Kerri writes: “Women have walked for centuries, and many of them have found the act of walking to be extremely powerful, personally and creatively. Dozens have written compelling accounts of their walking, and what it meant and means to them. So why does walking and mountain literature continue to ignore not only women’s stories, but the fact that they walked at all?”
