Robert Macfarlane tallks about "The Wild Places"

Just in case you didn't spot this BBC Radio 4 program...........

"James Naughtie and readers talk to travel writer and literary critic Robert Macfarlane about his book The Wild Places, in which he sets out to discover if there remain any genuinely wild places in Britain and Ireland.

It is an account of journeys that he made to the remaining wilderness in the islands. He climbs hills and mountains, walks across moors and bogs, luxuriates beside hidden lochs, swims through caves and disappears into forests, all in search of that special quality of solitude in communion with nature"

Now on BBCi Player - catch it while you can


I just finished reading Macfarlane's THE WILD PLACES. It is a gorgeously written account of his adventures in finding the still wild places in Great Britain.

I am currently writing a book about my 1,000 mile walk around Lake Michigan (yes, it's THAT big), and his book has been a great inspiration to me.
