'An absolute gem of a book' Alastair Humphreys First published in 1926, The Gentle Art of Tramping is as relevant now as then. Tramping is an approach: to nature, to humankind, to nations, to beauty, to life itself. This lost classic is a breath of fresh air for world-weary souls. It is a gentle art; know how to tramp and you know how to live. Know how to meet your fellow wanderer, how to be passive to the beauty of nature and how to be active to its wildness and its rigour. The adventure is not the getting there, it's the 'on-the-way'. It is not the expected, it is the surprise. Stephen Graham (1884-1975) was a British journalist, travel writer and novelist. His books recount his travels around pre-revolutionary Russia and to Jerusalem with a group of Russian Christian pilgrims. Most of his works express sympathy for the poor, for agricultural labourers and vagabonds, and his distaste for industrialisation. He was the son of the editor of Country Life.
