Think the oldest mode of transportation is still the best? Whether you prefer to walk, wiggle, saunter or strut, these books will put a spring in your step.

Who needs destinations? This summer, we're focusing on the journey. All these books — some old, some new — will transport you: by train, plane, car, bike, boat, foot, city transit, horse, balloon, rocket ship, time machine and even the odd giant peach. Bon voyage! (Taxes and fees not included).
