In spare musings that are sometimes poignant, sometimes hilarious, but always informative, Kirk Ward Robinson recounts a life of wanderlust, from his earliest memories to the sobering present, where time is advancing more quickly than his journeys to come.


Twice named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books, Robinson brings that same experiential feel to Notes from the Field, along with the maps that will finally assuage readers of his book, Hiking Through History.
