Contemplating Paths And Byways In 'On Trails'

While hiking along the Appalachian Trail, writer Robert Moor gave much thought to how trails matter in our world. His ponderings led to, On Trails: An Exploration

The book asks us to think about the animals that made the first trails, trailblazing technology and what hiking teaches us about how we can live. We talk with Moor about the world’s paths and byways - be they literal, virtual or figurative - and the importance of meditating on something as basic as why we walk.
