    schema:reviewBody ""Are there any genuinely wild places left in Britain and Ireland? Or have we tarmacked, farmed and built ourselves out of wildness? In The Wild Places, Macfarlane embarks on a series of journeys in search of the wildness that remains in these islands." "His journeys take him through some of the most remarkable landscapes of our archipelago. He climbs, walks and swims through these places in rainstorm, sunlight and blizzard, by darkness and by day, and in all seasons. He spends nights sleeping out on cliff-tops and remote beaches, deep in snowy woods, on pilgrim islands, mountain summits, and ancient meadows. He bathes in phosphorescent seas, walks frozen rivers at night, and watches a red sun rise over an Arctic England. In the course of his journeys, Macfarlane's own understanding of wildness undergoes a transformation."--Jacket." ;
