Written in 1927 but still very much relevant today. Stephen Graham was an extraordinary tramp and remains a patron saint of all wild campers. If you love being outside and sleeping under the stars in a wood, by a river, on the beach, at the top of a mountain, then hunt down a copy of this gem and treasure it.
An absolutely magical book, anyone who has ever walked anywhere just for the joy of walking should read this book!
Wonderful, fun and inspiring read. The writing is so energetic and creative. The style and class that Stephen Graham expresses through his on-the-road tramp's musings is new to me, not ever quite encountered in anything else I've read. This one is staying in plain sight, to be dipped into again and again, even if just for a few moments' pleasure. Highly recommended.

An absolutely beautiful book, courtesy of one of the old school of brilliantly mad old English gentlemen, which I did a disservice by nicking a vaguely rude chapter opening for a Facebook status. Apologies, Mr Graham.

A great little book that no one has ever heard of (and you will never read).
This is just an awesome book for walking or hiking enthusiasts!

Stephen Graham (1884 - 15 March 1975) was a British journalist, travel-writer, essayist and novelist. His best-known books recount his travels around pre-revolutionary Russia and his journey to Jerusalem with a group of Russian Christian pilgrims. Most of his works express his sympathy for the poor, for agricultural labourers and for tramps, and his distaste for industrialisation.
