    Small island

    Can the questions over Britain’s future be answered by maps of our past? What is Britain? How did our nation get to be the shape that it is? And will those borders change? Not long ago, these questions were rarely posed, as it felt as though Britain’s borders were an immutable fact, the bedrock upon which British culture could stand forever. But after the Scottish and Brexit referenda we discovered that British identity is more fragile than we ever believed.

    Raynor Winn knows that her husband Moth’s health is declining, getting worse by the day. She knows of only one cure. It worked once before. But will he – can he? – set out with her on another healing walk? The Cape Wrath Trail is over two hundred miles of gruelling terrain through Scotland’s remotest mountains and lochs. But the lure of the wilderness and the beguiling beauty of the awaiting glens draw them northwards. Being one with nature saved them in their darkest hour and their hope is that it can work its magic again. As they set out on their incredible thousand-mile journey back to the familiar shores of the South-west Coast Path, Raynor and Moth map the landscape of an island nation facing an uncertain path ahead. In this book, she records in luminous prose the strangers and friends, wilderness and wildlife they encounter on the way – it’s a journey that begins in fear but can only end in hope.

  • Rome

    £20.00

    Rome

    Matthew Rice is a long-time observer and illustrator of cities, buildings and all those who inhabit them, with an uncanny ability to express the energy of a place through a few lines of ink and splashes of paint. In the first book in this sketchbook series, he explored the glittering canals of Venice: now he turns his attention to Rome, the Eternal City. Rome is a place where the ancient, the baroque and the modern clash, and this tension runs through Matthew’s paintings. In this guide, he makes sly juxtapositions of people and animals against the backdrop of the city’s architectural and artistic wonders, its ruins and its ristoranti.

    Tender Maps

    ‘Tender Maps’ is an attempt to define the indefinable, and an exploration of why it is so crucial that we try. From the bluebell woods of Somerset to the freeways of LA, from Istanbul to Nashville, Tbilisi to Venice, Alice Maddicott has journeyed restlessly in search of the thing that meant the most to her: the feeling of a place. But this is more than a travelogue – it’s also a journey of ideas about our experience of place, which encompasses early mapmaking , radical land art, Celtic Christianity, Situationism, children’s literature, and much more.

    Gone away

    At the age of 20, Dom Moraes – already a celebrated poet who would go on to be regarded as one of India’s finest writers – returned to his native India after finishing education in England. After spending time in Delhi, meeting Jawaharlal Nehru and the young Dalai Lama, he embarked on a meandering journey through northern India, Nepal and Sikkim at a time of political tension and the threat of invasion by China. Brilliant, curious and precocious, seldom without a drink in his hand, he chanced his way into some extraordinary situations – including staying in a Nepalese palace with a resident bear and being shot at and chased by Chinese soldiers. ‘Gone Away’ details these adventures with a poet’s eye for detail, and the luminosity and humour for which Moraes was known.

    In search of Sheba

    In 1959, Barbara Toy set out to drive from Libya to Ethiopia. Alone, she crossed the Sahara Desert and the equatorial forests of the Congo before ascending the highlands of Haile Selassie’s empire. Her Ethiopian travels took her from modern Addis Ababa to the ancient ruins of Aksum, through bandit-ridden countryside to the summit of Mount Wehni – where male heirs to the emperor were traditionally imprisoned for life – on a quest to explore the legend of the Queen of Sheba. Full of good humour and grit, ‘In Search of Sheba’ chronicles a remarkable feat of endurance and adventure.
