The Wild Places

Are there any genuinely wild places left in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales?

That is the question that writer Robert Macfarlane poses to himself as he embarks on a series journeys through some of the archipelago’s most remarkable landscapes. As he climbs, walks, and swims in all manner of weather – sleeping on cliff tops and remote beaches, deep in snowy wildwoods and ancient meadows, and bathing in phosphorescent seas or hiking frozen rivers at night – his understanding of nature is transformed. With lyrical elegance and passion, he entwines history and landscape in a bewitching evocation of wildness and its vital importance.
