Are there any genuinely wild places left in Britain and Ireland? That is the question that Macfarlane poses to himself as he embarks on a series of breathtaking journeys through some of the archipelago''s most remarkable landscapes. Illustrated.
Annotation:
Robert Macfarlane's nature and travel essays transcend the usual boundaries of those genres. In THE WILD PLACES, he visits and writes about the still untouched areas of the British Isles, the "wild places" indeed, where he finds landscapes that are sometimes barren and rough, other times lush and full of animal and plant life. As for humans? They figure here, too, in his historical narratives of centuries past as well as in the references to the enduring literature associated with these locales. Aware, learned, and entertaining, Macfarlane's essays help us realize the awesome power of the land and its ability to determine its own fate. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2008.

Praise

"[THE WILD PLACES] is 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." - Holly Morris 07/06/2008
