Walking Home by Patrick Noble
Foreword by Lawrence Woodward OBE

New title from Smokehouse Press

Patrick Noble’s writing becomes more and more elegaic as the governments and peoples of the world fail to take notice of the looming disaster that awaits us all.

How do we face the related catastrophes of ecological collapse and a dis-balanced climate? Governments, corporations and their dependencies propose that we green our ways of life, without changing them. Yet if those ways of life are the cause of the problem, then greening answers nothing.

In his latest book Patrick Noble proposes that we walk home, beside the road and beneath the vapour trails, to quietly consider a new and happier way of life, which is a part of the balance of ecology and climate. It proposes a society in which both work and pleasure are walking distances from everyone's door.
