The Old Ways : A Journey on Foot
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.

'He has a rare physical intelligence and affords total immersion in place, elements and the passage of time: wonderful' Antony Gormley
