A Sunday Times Bestseller

The genre-defining book by acclaimed nature writer Robert Macfarlane

Travel Britain's ancient paths and discover the secrets of this beautiful, underappreciated 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.

A critically acclaimed writer, journalist and fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, Robert Macfarlane’s wide-ranging non-fiction writing encompasses nature, language, memory, landscape, literature and travel. His books include The Old Ways, Mountains of the Mind, The Wild Places, Holloway (with Stanley Donwood and Dan Richards) and Landmarks. His wonderful new book, The Lost Words was published on 2nd October 2017 and is available now.
