9780143113935: The Wild Places

?An eloquent (and compulsively readable) reminder that, though we?re laying waste the world, nature still holds sway over much of the earth?s surface.?
?Bill McKibben


Are there any genuinely wild places left in Britain and Ireland? That is the question that Robert Macfarlane poses to himself as he embarks on a series of breathtaking journeys through some of the archipelago?s most remarkable landscapes. He climbs, walks, and swims by day and spends his nights sleeping on cliff-tops and in ancient meadows and wildwoods. With elegance and passion he entwines history, memory, and landscape in a bewitching evocation of wildness and its vital importance. A unique travelogue that will intrigue readers of natural history and adventure, The Wild Places solidifies Macfarlane?s reputation as a young writer to watch.

Review:

a" The Wild Places" boldly celebrates places that arenat supposed to exist, and does so in prose that is at times very nearly as vivid and beautiful as the thing itself.a
aRebecca Solnit
a Prose as precise as this is not just evocative. It is a manifesto in itself. Macfarlaneas language urges us to gaze more closely at the wonders around us, to take notice, to remind ourselves how thrillingly alive a spell in the wild can make us seem.a
a"The Sunday Times" (UK)

aA formidable consideration by a naturalist who can unfurl a sentence a poetry, really a with the breathless ease of a master angler, a writer whose ideas and reach transcend the physical region he exploresa]the natural world swells with meaning through Macfarlaneas devoted observations, which can be both minutely detailed and vast in scopea]like the wild it parses, [this book] quietly returns us to ourselves.a
a "The New York Times Book Review"
aInspiringa]Macfarlane brings these landscapes to pulsing lifea]His precision in apprehending the world is a salutary lesson in and of itselfa]His descriptions have created a new map of Britain and Ireland in my mind. And like pebbles in a pond, those descriptions are now altering the way I look at the world immediately around me.. this is the final gift of Macfarlaneas wild places: they illuminate the wild wonder of our everyday world.a
