If hiking is your passion, this book will bring you back to the paths of wonder you may have experienced in the past or encourage you to explore in the future. Not only does it urge you to hit the trails again, the personal stories and majestic walking sticks will escort you on journeys never yet seen or heard.
If hiking isn't necessarily your thing, the prose and photography are more than enough to guide your imagination and lead you to the natural beauty of our world that the author paints so beautifully in this book!
Wander and wonder with Joyce!
This beautiful book sets on my coffee table surrounded by a variety of photo books. Yet this one is unique. With stunning photographs of the Western United States on to Alaska, Africa and even Japan, walking sticks become the unifying theme opening one's eyes to a special beauty that emerges as geography, culture and family become one landscape. Some of my favorite walking sticks include the branded walking sticks from Mt. Fugi (circa 1954), the Bhutanese walking sticks and the Hawaiian Curly Koa walking sticks. A very fun and truly enlightening read!
This book is so unique! The author collected stories about walking sticks all around the world and about those individuals who lean on them. Page after page of beautiful photographs fleshed out the theme: "Wanderings and Wonderings"....poetry, narrative, imagery....beautifully combined. I was flipping through the book tonight again and it's got me wishing it was the weekend again--wishing I could go find some path to explore.
