Kerri Andrews

Interview: Wanderers, A History of Women Walking

I was interviewed by UKHillwalking very recently:

‘From William Wordsworth to Alfred Wainwright, why is it that the most famous names in the record of walking for pleasure are overwhelmingly male? The voices of female walkers of the past receive less attention in later accounts than their male contemporaries. But despite facing barriers, women have been walking, and writing eloquently about it, from the very beginning. These oft-neglected accounts are the subject of Dr Kerri Andrews’ book, which seeks to set the historical record straight.’
