The Old Ways

The Old Ways

Author(s): Robert Macfarlane

Location(s): United Kingdom



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.
