The Old Ways: A Journey On Foot - Robert Macfarlane
The original bestseller from the author of Underland, Landmarks and The Lost Words - Robert Macfarlane travels Britain's ancient paths and discovers the secrets of our beautiful, under appreciated landscape.
Following the tracks, holloways, drove-roads and sea paths that form part of a vast ancient network of routes criss-crossing the British Isles and beyond, Robert Macfarlane discovers a lost world - a landscape of the feet and the mind, of pilgrimage and ritual, of stories and ghosts; above all of the places and journeys which inspire and inhabit our imaginations.
Robert Macfarlane's books have been adapted for television by the BBC and have won the Books Are My Bag Beautiful Book Award and the Hay Festival Book of the Year. Robert Macfarlane is a Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and writes on environmentalism, literature and travel for publications including the Guardian, the Sunday Times and The New York Times.
