“The Circumference of Home gracefully shows how a man begins to reevaluate and appreciate his world close to home. Vowing to travel only by foot, kayak, bike or public transportation after learning that his carbon footprint is twice the national average, Hoelting rediscovers the land close to home and in the process feels the whole pace of his life slowing down. In a world where it takes a considerable effort to step out of the fast lane, I found this book a welcome invitation to take the sidewalk.”

In the spirit of Gary Snyder, one man’s year spent traveling by kayak, bike, and on foot in his attempt to radically simplify his life
