The Old Ways

Following the tracks, holloways, drove-roads and sea paths that form part of a vast ancient network of routes criss-crossing the British Isles and beyond, Robert Macfarlane discovers a lost world - a landscape of the feet and the mind, of pilgrimage and ritual, of stories and ghosts; above all of the places and journeys which inspire and inhabit our imaginations.

A Journey on Foot explores the relationships between paths, walking and the imagination. It tells the story of walking a 1000 miles in the search of a route to the past, a text about people and place.
