9780099558392: The Green Road Into The Trees

WINNER OF THE 2014 THWAITES WAINWRIGHT PRIZE

In the past, Hugh Thomson has written acclaimed books about Peru, Mexico and the Indian Himalaya. Now he returns to the most exotic and foreign country of them all – his own.

Walking right across England, along ancient trackways and green grass roads, Hugh explores the way the country was and the way it is today: the legends, literature and natural world that define us, and the undercurrent of regret running throughout our history; what he calls ‘the unicorn disappearing into the trees’.

From coast-to-coast and through the heart of the countryside, he shows how older,forgotten cultures like the Celts, Saxons and Vikings lie much closer to the surface than we may think. It is a journey enriched and partly told by the characters he meets along the way. By taking it, Hugh casts unexpected light – and humour – on the way we live now.

Review:

"He is an illuminating companion...frequently comic, his voice is original and engaging; proof that it is the walker, not the path, that counts." (Independent)

"An immensely enjoyable book: curious, articulate, intellectually playful and savagely candid." (The Spectator)

"He records more than impressions: there are fascinating excursions into neglected areas of British history, and conversations with hippies, travellers and farmers, which makes Mr Thomson’s journey a joy to follow." (Country Life)

"Often funny and always enlightening" (Candida Lycett Green Countryfile)

"I would love to walk with Thomson" (John Sutherland Financial Times)
