"Rangy"

1. Slim and long-limbed.
2. Inclined to roaming.

[From Middle English range (row), from Old French rangier (to arrange).
Ultimately from Indo-European root sker- (to turn or bend), the source of
ranch, rank, shrink, circle, crisp, search, ring, curb, ridge, and curve.]

"[Philip] Pullman is a rangy, spirited man in his fifties with a bristling fringe of gray hair; at times, he resembles an intelligent and amused stork." --Laura Miller; Far From Narnia; The New Yorker; Dec 26, 2005
