About the Author

Linda Cracknell is a writer of narrative nonfiction on the natural world, as well as of fiction and radio scripts. Her first story collection was nominated for Scotland's National Book Awards and the Robin Jenkins Literary Award for environmental writing, and her essay collection Doubling Back: Ten Paths Trodden in Memory, about journeys she took on foot in Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, and Kenya, was serialized for BBC Radio as a Book of the Week. All of Linda's writing is inspired first and foremost by place, and she teaches nature and place writing.


"A winning combination of memoir, travelogue and literary meditation." Daily Mail

"With Cracknell's writing, you don't so much see the landscape as feel it." The Scotsman

"Cracknell wonderfully explores the strange durability of the paths that we make in our lives, in our dreams and after our deaths." Robert Macfarlane, author of Underland and The Old Ways

"A poignant and passionate memoir ... a heartfelt exploration of the mental and physical landscapes that shape our lives." Gavin Francis, author of Adventures in Human Being

"Not so much a book to inspire you to do her walks, but to challenge you to enjoy your own walks more. Refreshing, lovely, fun: good walking and good writing." Sara Maitland, author of From the Forest and A Book of Silence

"There is not a step taken in this book that does not engage the writer, and so the reader. To walk with Linda Cracknell is to explore landscape and memory ... It is to be enriched by the compulsions of a lifetime." Tom Pow, poet
