Torbjørn Ekelund

Torbjørn Ekelund is an author and editor of the Norwegian online nature magazine, Harvest Magazine. He is a dedicated outdoors person and avid walker, who, after being diagnosed with epilepsy several years ago, hung up his car keys for good. In all of his works, he explores and writes about the small things in nature that surround us every day. In this poignant, meandering book, Ekelund interweaves the literature and history of paths with his own stories from the trail. If we still “understand ourselves in relation to the landscape,” Ekelund asks, then what do we lose in an era of car travel and navigation apps? And what will we gain from taking to paths once again? Ekelund lives and walks the paths in Oslo, Norway.
