The Old Ways– Winners!

The lucky winners of the latest Dabbler Book Club selection…

Free books. What’s not to like? Especially when the book in question is Robert Macfarlane’s The Old Ways, a book that has deservedly been sitting in the bestseller lists for weeks now. Told in Macfarlane’s distinctive and celebrated voice, the book uses walks along ancient pathways to fold together natural history, cartography, geology, archaeology and literature. His tracks take him from the chalk downs of England to the bird-islands of the Scottish northwest, and from the disputed territories of Palestine to the sacred landscapes of Spain and the Himalayas.
