  • A wonderful book: Macfarlane has a rare physical intelligence, and his writing affords total immersion in place, elements and the passage of time

    Antony Gormley
  • A naturalist who can unfurl a sentence with the breathless ease of a master angler, a writer whose ideas and reach far transcend the physical region he explores

    The New York Times Book Review
  • [Mountains of the Mind is] a distinguished book that jolted my heart. Adventurous, passionate, intensely romantic . . . fizzes with insights

    Roger Deakin
  • A new naturalist to set beside the classics in our literature

    Evening Standard
  • The Old Ways confirms Robert Macfarlane's reputation as one of the most eloquent and observant of contemporary writers about nature

    Scotland on Sunday
  • Macfarlane relishes wild, as well as old, places. He writes about both beautifully . . . I love to read Macfarlane

    Financial Times
  • Read this and it will be impossible to take an unremarkable walk again
