Some brief overview of this book

Desire Paths begins on a hospital gurney as the author prepares for open heart surgery. Thereafter, it dances back and forth in place and time between an array of connected walks that Roy has undertaken over the years. Each chapter starts with a quote from Phil Smith's Mythogeography, specifically from the 'Legend' given in that book-'legend' as in a set of definitions of Desire Paths begins on a hospital gurney as the author prepares for open heart surgery.

Thereafter, it dances back and forth in place and time between an array of connected walks that Roy has undertaken over the years. Each chapter starts with a quote from Phil Smith's Mythogeography, specifically from the 'Legend' given in that book-'legend' as in a set of definitions of symbols used on maps to define landscape features. Roy uses these symbols to organize the book.

The main body of each chapter is an account of a walking journey he has done, arranged by Legend, not time. Towards the end of each chapter, Roy reflects on a Landscape Feature that corresponds to the Legend-exploring the workability (or playability) of mythogeographical concepts and illustrating how they have manifested in his own walking. Finally, the Jump Over the Back Fence notes in each chapter suggest further actual walks which readers could make.
