Walking Through Spring
Walking Through Spring follows Graham Hoyland's journey as he creates a new national trail, walking with the Spring from the south coast in March up to the border with Scotland, which he reaches on the longest day: the twenty-first of June. 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 otter's point of view down the River Eden to the Scottish border, he finds himself engaging with some of England's best nature writers, discovering the essence of the country and meeting England's 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?

Maps and Socks: A Walker's Miscellany
Maps and Socks is an anthology of writings by authors who describe their experiences of walking at various times and in various places, without technical travel details. The weather is all-important to them. They discuss the reasons why they set off, where they went, and how they felt in the hills. They went by road, across plains, through forests, bee-lining across country (trespassing occasionally), on long-distance paths, over passes, and up into the hills. They may walk on into the night, and sleeping out may be an ecstatic experience or it may rain. They may walk too far and too fast, and then enjoy a rest. They may have a large pack hung with cooking utensils, or just take a sandwich in a side-pocket. Some prefer to walk alone and meditate or talk to themselves or the sheep; others enjoy walking in groups, and find that it encourages good talk. Alone or in groups it is natural to sing. When their walking days are over, they can relive past expeditions in diaries and maps alone or with old companions. Many walkers experience a sudden sense of something undefinable, occurring unexpectedly, usually short-lived, but bringing intense happiness and the feeling that all's right with the world. Their descriptions all tally, although they are hard-put to explain it. It is a theme that runs through this anthology.
