Book Overview
Ghostways brings two of best-selling author Robert Macfarlane's eeriest works of impressionistic nature writing to American readers for the first time. In Holloway , Macfarlane and his collaborators explore the famed holloways of South Dorset, a landscape of shadows and spectres in the southwestern corner of England. In Ness , they create a modern myth about Orford Ness, the shingle desert of southeast England, for decades the United Kingdom's secret atomic weapons testing site. Featuring Stanley Donwood's spectacular etchings of woodland scenes throughout, Ghostways is a beautiful and haunted work of art unlike any other.
