Pre-order:

"A resplendent debut ...echoing Thoreau’s brilliant reflections with his own, Shattuck distills the healing power of nature into a narrative that’s a pure pleasure to wander through. Fans of Annie Dillard will find this mesmerizing." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
“Wistful and meditative, sparked by lovely prose.” — Kirkus Review 
 
"A book of loss and redemption, fear and fragile hope. Six Walks is rich, evocative, and unexpectedly dangerous ― in that best of Thoreauvian ways." — National Book Award Winner Nathaniel Philbrick
 
“I think Thoreau would have liked this book, and that’s a high recommendation.” — Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature
 
“A gorgeous reminder that walking is the most radical form of locomotion nowadays.”  — Nick Offerman 
 
"Six Walks offers a moving meditation on nature and history — and what our precarious place between these two realms may be.” — Pulitzer Prize Finalist Hernan Diaz
 
“What a very beautiful book. Every page is a pleasure. Charming, insightful, and full of humanity, this gem reminded me how profound it can feel to simply walk the earth.”
 – Karen Thompson Walker, author of The Dreamers
