Searching for the magic in the everyday? For that moment when we find a heightened understanding of ordinary things? For a way to welcome in enchantment?

Here is one set of keys to that magic: tools for paying close and respectful attention to everything as we walk; ideas and tactics for making deft and intuitive connections to a bigger picture.

Invited to be Artist-in-Residence at Carleton College, Northfield, Phil Smith chose to re-examine mythogeography – his remarkable way of walking with heightened awareness – as he explored the town’s suburbs, its utopian grid and magic square, an early silence about the place, and the spectacle of the bungled Jesse James raid of 1876. John Schott followed him with a camera and his images, in turn, inspired the text of this book.
In his walking, Phil Smith conjured a "blurting out of things" in Northfield, to fuel a new kind of mythogeography. In this book, he and John Schott demonstrate how we can all do the same. This is a book for anyone who would like to walk that way.
