A Journey on Foot

Anmeldelser

«A story of tenacity, told with humility, in a West Africa experienced deeply at the pace of a walk. I loved this book - its thoughtfulness, turn of phrase and lightness of touch as the author escapes one life to rediscover another.»

Sophy Roberts, author of The Lost Pianos of Siberia

«Martineau segues effortlessly from practical desert challenges to striking encounters... [he] finds trust in the road and learns to trust his unrest... there is a sense that the waypoints he encounters inspire a new, and encouraging, optimism.»

Caroline Eden, Times Literary Supplement

«[Martineau] is fine and thoughtful company for the journey, sensitive to the fraught history of Europeans who have used Africa and Africans as a backdrop for their exploits»

Washington Post

«Waypoints wonderfully explores how walking animates resilience in times of stress, anxiety and worry, illustrating, through personal experience, how the journey is often our collective human goal.»

Shane O'Mara, author of 'In Praise of Walking'

«An astonishing dream-like journey... Martineau has written a deeply affecting book which sears itself on the memory like the sun of the western Sahel.»

Philip Marsden, author of 'Rising Ground', 'The Spirit-Wrestlers' and 'The Crossing Place'

«A wonderful book.»

Giles Foden, i
