There are still wild places out there on our over-crowded planet. Through a series of personal journeys, Dan Richards explores their romantic and exploratory appeal.
Following a route from the Cairngorms of Scotland to the fire-watching huts of Washington State, from Iceland’s Houses of Joy to the desert of New Mexico, and from the frozen beauty of Svalbard to a lighthouse perched in the Atlantic, Richards uncovers landscapes that have inspired writers, artists and musicians.
‘Richards’ prose is by turns beautiful, funny, evocative and learned, the pages illuminated by lovely, warming footnotes’ Observer
