The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot by Robert MacFarlane.
This is one of the books I've been reading. I learned about it recently on Facebook thanks to a friend's status line. Some passages in the book have led me to somewhat new ways of thinking. To new approaches to some of my preoccupations perhaps. We'll see.
It's a marvellous book. And there's a new one, apparently, called Holloway, which I'm really looking forward to reading -- published first as a private press book, designed and printed letterpress, which sold out immediately, then published by (I think ) Faber. Yes, he challenges us to think about the landscape from a different perspective, doesn't he?
He sure does! Thanks for the heads-up on Holloway. I'll definitely check it out.
Sounds interesting! I'll have to check out both titles...
And Norman Hendersen, I think.
PS: Goldfinches here yesterday, too!
Cop-out! (not letting the book be its own stone)
