Clara Bensen: four books that changed me

Clara Bensen is the author of No Baggage: A Tale of Love and Wandering.

One of four books that changed her, as shared at the Sydney Morning Herald:
Wanderlust: A History of Walking
Rebecca Solnit​

Who knew that putting one foot in front of the other could be unpacked in so many different ways? In Wanderlust, Rebecca Solnit dissects the history of walking, guiding the reader through the politics, philosophy, and science of a movement many of us take for granted. I love when a book reveals a hidden world that's been in front of me the whole time. Wanderlust brings new meaning to even the simplest pedestrian acts.
Read about the other books on the list.
