Paperback & eBookeBook only

One morning in 2011, Libby DeLana stepped outside her New England home for a walk. She did the same thing the next day, and the next. It became a daily habit that has culminated in her walking over 25,000 miles – the equivalent of the earth’s circumference.

In Do Walk, Libby shares the transformative nature of this simple yet powerful practice. She reveals how walking each day provides the time and space to reconnect with the natural world; process thoughts; improve our wellbeing, and unlock creativity. It is the ultimate navigational tool that helps us to see who we are – beyond titles and labels, and where we want to go. 

With stunning photography, this inspiring and reflective guide is an invitation to step outside, and see where the path takes us.  

This paperback includes a free ebook download.


Do Walk has wildly impacted my life and inspired me to make some changes… I would’ve never thought that I’d find gratitude in walking.

Alex Elle, NYT bestselling author of How We Heal

An illuminating book that powerfully conveys a simple truth: that putting one foot in front of the other is a transformative act. DeLana writes with insight, heart, and wit about love, loss, work, creativity, and the mysteries of being human. Do Walk is a moving and wise book about one woman’s path toward enlightenment, that also tells a story about us all.

Cheryl Strayed, international bestselling author

Do Walk is a refreshing reminder that daily exercise isn't so much about sweat and exertion as it is about commitment and exploration, of nature and self. DeLana's evocative prose allows us to walk next to her, passing through the seasons of life. This book helped me examine parts of my life but more than anything, it made me want to lace up and head outside.

Charlie Engle, endurance runner and author

Who knew that a daily walk could be a transformational experience? Libby DeLana shares inspiring stories and her best practices in this special little book. So much of the wisdom in Do Walk stayed with me long after finishing it.

Cheryl Richardson, NYT bestselling author of Take Time for your Life

The book that started me walking daily… Inspiring text and spectacular pics!

Do Walk Wildly with Cheryl Strayed

'Give yourself permission to do what you want.' Cheryl Strayed is author of several bestsellers including her memoir Wild, which recounts her story of why she undertook the epic 1,100 mile hike along the Pacific North Coast Trail. The book was later turned into an Oscar-nominated film starring Reese Witherspoon. Libby walks every day. Every. Single. Day. The idea came from a simple thought to relearn how to see and to slow down.
