    The Old Ways ePUB Ô The Old Kindle - ´ PDF christian living.co ways ebok, The Old epub, The Old Ways ePUBThis one really hit the sweet spot for me It gets you tuned into walking journeys all over the UK with side trips in Spain Palestine and Tibet Lyrical presentations of the author’s sensory experiences with the geography and the flora and fauna are harnessed as a gateway to history of the particular paths he took and the inspired outlooks of people who have thought deeply about the affinity of the human mind and civilization to walking in general and connectedness to the land I have long been fascinated by how people understand themselves using landscape by the topographies of self we carry within us and by the maps we make with which to navigate these interior terrains We think in metaphors drawn from place and sometimes those metaphors do not only adorn our thought but actively produce itMacFarlane finds insight in how much human language is infused with words for travel paths and their purpose For example an Aboriginal tribe in western Canada has the same word for ‘knowl

    The Old Ways ePUB Ô The Old Kindle - ´ PDF christian living.co ways ebok, The Old epub, The Old Ways ePUBI didn't enjoy this book at all I thought it was as boring as it was well written Walking isn't a subject that interests me much but the location and history of the walks does There was too much about the minutae of the walks long lists of every kind of plant and a thesaurusful of synonyms The author is in love with words for words sake I'm not I like the words to go somewhere and these didn't for meWritten whilst reading the bookview spoilerI'm listening to the BBC abridged book as I often do before buying the print book and sometimes as with Oliver Sacks' wonderful On the Move the abridgement is truly awful and to anyone who has read and loved the book mystifying It makes you wonder if the editor has actually read the book or relied on synopses of each chapter So I am wondering if this abridgement is not indicative of the whole book but this one has to interest me enough to buy it and so far it hasn't hide spoiler

    The Old Ways ePUB Ô The Old Kindle - ´ PDF christian living.co ways ebok, The Old epub, The Old Ways ePUBWhat I like about this is that it helps me to see the land and the biosphere feel the land and its life in my body to relate myself to the land even in memory and in the future As Naomi Klein puts it in This Changes Everything Capitalism vs The Climate love will save this place And for many of Robert's fellow British who have been what Klein again calls rootless consumers for most of our lives feeling connected to the land other than in a proprietorial or nationalistic way I guess might be something we can't even remember something we have to learn like a new language I guess this book is all about the human in the land about history traces of other people ancient and now And maybe thinking into the land this way is awesome and helpful In nature is excitement and sustenance and restoration half a way out of

    The Old Ways ePUB Ô The Old Kindle - ´ PDF christian living.co ways ebok, The Old epub, The Old Ways ePUBTo begin with I found this a disappointing read I expected to be impressed and enthralled I love mountains I love walking and I like erudite writing but I found this a little difficult to get into The writing flows but the contents don't always work I think this is because Macfarlane uotes from too many different sources and it seems as if he is wanting to show you all the clever stuff he has read without saying anything himself If you find this I say persevere because it settles down and

    The Old Ways ePUB Ô The Old Kindle - ´ PDF christian living.co ways ebok, The Old epub, The Old Ways ePUBThis was my first book by Macfarlane and my first book of this decade and a good start on both fronts I really enjoyed his style of writing which felt immersive though the pace of the book was sedate I love walking myself it is for me one of the most meditative things I can think to do and The Old ways is a sort of ode to the practice Definitely curious to read Macfarlane's much pr

    The Old Ways ePUB Ô The Old Kindle - ´ PDF christian living.co ways ebok, The Old epub, The Old Ways ePUBMacFarlane has some poetry to his credit and it shows Of course this is not surprising as he is a travel writer and travel writers are all about description imagery in other words They are our planes trains and automobiles bound to get us there And in this case once there McFarlane asks that we walk by his side and listen as he identifies the rocks trees birds cloud types and historical back stories These are the old ways the foot paths the link if you will to our ancestorsThe book starts and ends in MacFarlane's jolly own England He also hopscotches across the globe to walk in Scotland Palestine and Tibet His descriptions can be arresting A police state of poetic diction if you will Good stuff So obscure is some of the ancient language of the old ways that MacFarlane provides a glossary in the back Good thing I didn't know that lacustrine means lake l
