This review is from: The Wild Places (Paperback)
Robert Macfarlane's book 'wild places' eloquently describes the feeling I've often experienced in wild places, but have been unable to articulate.
This book is about his various trips around the wild places of Britain and Ireland, mixed in with a history of the place visited, stories of the people who have been before and an interesting smattering of word origin. Occasionally quite gritty with the weather experienced, the book provides a nice antidote with stories of night walks under starry skies, or swimming in some little known pool around the UK coast.
This is a nice book that can be read in one sitting, or dipped into now and then.
