1st printing. Pictorial wrappers. 144pp. Illustrated with excellent half-tone photos of the Woolf's walking journeys. This is what the Kansas Historical Society has to say about the "Walking Woolfs," "... Mr. and Mrs. Dwight H. Woolf, also known as the Walking Woolfs. They wrote a book titled Tramping and Camping published by S. I. Meseraull & Son, Kansas City, Kansas. The book tells of Mr. Woolf's failing health in 1909, when he was a 107 pound music publisher. His doctor told him he must get outside to revive his health. With his wife's encouragement, they started walking first to the Ozarks and back to Kansas City, Kansas, three hundred miles; then a thousand mile trip to New York, and finally an eight thousand mile walk through the South and East and back to Kansas City, Kansas. They were accompanied by their horse Dolly and dog Don." Lightly to moderately worn covers; overall easily a vg copy. Copies of this book are practically non-existent. Thus rare.
