WALKING One step at a Time by Erling Kagge receives wonderful reviews in US, published by Phanteon. The book is now sold to 20 languages, and is today also out in the UK, Viking Penguin.
“A lyrical account of an activity that is essential for our sanity, equilibrium, and well-being, from the author of Silence. A book to be handled and savored.”
The Wall Street Journal
“[Kagge] challenges readers to take steps toward a better understanding of one’s self and finding a peaceful place in the scheme of life. Recommended for all libraries, especially collections on the environment. The poetic and inspirational words will remind readers of Henry David Thoreau’s work by the same name.”
