Macfarlane embarks on a series of journeys in search of the wildness that remains in the British Isles.

Description

‘A wonderful evocation of Britain’s natural beauty and a reminder of our need to connect with the wilderness’ The Times Are there any genuinely wild places left in Britain and Ireland? Or have we farmed and built ourselves out of wildness? From forest to moor, mountain to saltmarsh, Robert Macfarlane explores the wild places of Britain to see the wonders we still possess. In his bewitching and inspiring modern classic of nature writing, the acclaimed author of Underland and The Lost Words presents a portrait of a vanishing but still miraculous British landscape. ‘Time and again he takes the reader’s breath away’ Financial Times ‘A marvellously evocative portrait of place’ Sunday Telegraph
