About this book
The award-winning traveller, explorer and writer Thomson journeys through the drover-paths and tracks of southern England, those half-covered by bramble and tunnelled by alder, beech and oak. He shows how older cultures like the Celts, Saxons and Vikings lie much closer to the surface than we may think. From the author of "Tequila Oil" and "Cochineal Red".
From the very centre of England - literally, as the author's village is furthest from the sea - he travels to its outermost edges. This title presents his journey made rich by the characters he meets along the way.
