Robert Macfarlane sets off from his Cambridge, England, home to follow the ancient tracks, holloways, drove roads, and sea paths that crisscross both the British landscape and its waters and territories beyond. The result is an immersive, enthralling exploration of the ghosts and voices that haunt old paths, of the stories tracks keep and tell, and of pilgrimage and ritual. The Old Ways folds together natural history, cartography, geology, archaeology, and literature.

I've read the took, now listened to the excellent read by Robin Sachs. Not to diminish the writing, Sacks reading is a great way to fall asleep with the even tone, no drama.

As a one-time walker of the hills, dales, fens, lakes, even the city paths, it's a joy to return in my imagination, memory & dreaming.
