Details

This book presents an ethnography of nature walks in a rural area of Paraná state, southern Brazil. The event is organized by government agencies responsible for implementing public policies for farming, tourism, the environment and culture, as well as by the local community of small farmers.

However, a deeper inquiry into the layers of experiences and practices accumulated over the history of human walking reveals a multiplicity of lines interwoven into this event. Over the course of this book, the authors have presented different aspects and epistemological consequences of the phrase “walking is knowing.” (Imprint: Nova)
