Walking Through Spring

Walking Through Spring


In Walking Through Spring Graham Hoyland walks north with Spring, from the South Coast to the Borders, tracing a new national trail. He connects a labyrinth of ancient footpaths, marking each mile by planting an acorn and drawing a path of oak trees that stretch through the English countryside.

From dairy cows cantering and kicking their heels in lush meadows in the West Country, to galloping bands of lambs in the Peak District and secret green ways winding along canal tow-paths up the Derwent Valley, Hoyland draws inspiration from the vast literary landscape as he watches the season unfold across the country. Whether it is sailing a dinghy through the Lake District or taking in an otterís point of view down the River Eden to the Scottish border, he finds himself engaging with some of Englandís best nature writers, discovering the essence of the country and meeting Englandís rural characters along the way.

What does Spring mean? Is it really getting earlier every year? Away from the streams of gleaming cars and motorways, can Springtime help us reconnect with the old England of The Wildwood and Pan?

Critical Praise

ĎThis richly enjoyable book will entertain you on one page, enrage you on the next and make you get your walking boots on the third. I think it's the most effective advertisement for the countryside I've ever encountered.í Daily Mail
