From the book's Preface:

People write books upon each available subject
nowadays, and maybe it really is besides they need to.
For greater than thirty years i've been traveling
on foot, and through that point i've got coated extra
than ten occasions the gap handled upon in those
pages. i have never continually made notes and sketches
of my quite a few excursions; and the truth that those
exist when it comes to the tramps chronicled within the
following pages, with the requests of associates, have
involved me in a exposure which was once by no means
intended whilst the walks have been made. i've got,
consequently, dedicated the sin — a pardonable
one, I belief — of including yet one more e-book to the
publishing world's output.

Walking has continually had a weird appeal and
attraction for me, my leader item in traveling on
foot being to determine completely the international locations I
visited, and to get one of the humans and out of
the crushed tracks.

I have made no test at positive writing or
finished drawing. The sketches and notes were
done off-hand and essentially as reminders of many
happy days spent taking walks at domestic and in a foreign country,
and in this account those pages may well, i'm
aware, benefit no larger eulogy than that of a
chronicle of very small beer.

It is still said that, because the walks have been
made in several years, i need to beg the reader's
indulgence if from time to time I lay myself open to the
charge of repetition in any of my reflections
and feedback.

E. W. FOX.
