Product Details

Praise

“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
