Frontispiece Chapter I -- WE SET OUT is a gentle art know how to tramp and you know how to live. IT Manners makyth man, and tramping makyth manners. Know how to meet your fellow-wanderer, how to be passive to the beauty of Nature and how to be active to its wildness and its rigour. Tramping brings one to reality. If you would have a portrait of Man you must not depict him in high hat and carrying in one hand a small shiny bag, nor would one draw him in gnarled corduroys and with red handkerchief about his neck, nor with lined brow on a high bench watching a hand that is pushing a pen, nor with pick and shovel on the road. You cannot show him carrying a rifle, . you dare not put him in priests garb w th conventional cross on breast. You will not point to King or Bishop with crown or mitre. But most fittingly you will show a man with staff in hand and burden on his shoulders, strivingonward from darkness to light upon an upward road, shading his eyes with his hand as he seeks his way. You will show a figure something like that posthumous picture of Tolstoy, called Tolstoy pilgrimaging toward eternity. So when you put on your old clothes and take to the road, ypu make at least a right gesture. You get into your right place in the world in the right way. Even if your tramping expedition is a mere jest, a jaunt, a spree, you are apt to feel the benefits of getting into a right relation toward God, Nature, and your fellow man. You get into an air that is refreshing and free. You liberate yourself from the tacit assumption of your everyday life. What a relief to escape from being voter, tax-payer, authority on old brass, brother of man who is an authority on old brass, author of best seller, uncle of author of best seller. What a relief to cease being for a while a grade-three clerk, or grade-two clerk who has reached his limit, to cease to be identified by ones salary or by ones golf handicap. It is undoubtedly a delicious moment when Miles the gardener seeing you coming along in tramping rig omits to touch his hat as you pass...
