Product description

Review

"A formidable consideration by a naturalist who can unfurl a sentence - poetry really - with the breathless ease of a master angler, a writer whose ideas and reach far transcend the physical region he explores . . . the natural world swells with meaning through Macfarlane's devoted observations." - The New York Times Book Review

"Macfarlane delivers crisp, engaging scenes . . . by the end of his peregrinations he had won me over completely." - Anthony Doerr, The Boston Globe

"In this eloquent travelogue, Macfarlane explores the last undomesticated landscapes in Britain and Ireland in a narration that blends history, memoir, and meditation . . . His striking prose not only evokes each locale's physicality in sensuous, deliberate detail, it glows with a reverence for nature in general and takes the reader on both a geographical and a philosophical journey." - Publishers Weekly

The Evening Standard

"...this is beautiful as well as intelligent writing...a new naturalist to set beside the classics in our literature"
