A history of the world in 500 walks

Are you looking for a new travel destination in 2017? Do you enjoy history? Then A history of the world in 500 walks by Sarah Baxter might be the book for you.

This compilation is divided into six periods of time: Prehistory — the Ancient World — the Middle Ages — Towards the Modern World — 19th century — 20th century. There are walks that take minutes and walks that take months.

The work is indexed by country, by location and by walk name, making it easy to use.

Over 30 public libraries in Australia own this title, according to the National Library’s TROVE database.
