From the acclaimed author of The Wild Places, an exploration of walking and thinking In this exquisitely written book, Robert Macfarlane sets off from his Cambridge, England, home to follow the ancient tracks, holloways, drove roads, and sea paths that crisscross both the British landscape and its waters and territories beyond. The result is an immersive, enthralling exploration of the ghosts and voices that haunt old paths, of the stories our tracks keep and tell, and of pilgrimage and ritual. Told in Macfarlane’s distinctive voice, The Old Ways folds together natural history, cartography, geology, archaeology and literature. His walks take him from the chalk downs of England to the bird islands of the Scottish northwest, from Palestine to the sacred landscapes of Spain and the Himalayas. Along the way he crosses paths with walkers of many kinds—wanderers, pilgrims, guides, and artists. Above all this is a book about walking as a journey inward and the subtle ways we are shaped by the landscapes through which we move. Macfarlane discovers that paths offer not just a means of traversing space, but of feeling, knowing, and thinking.

"Imagine knowing something, knowing it so well that it's burned deep into your gut. You’d question your own name before you questioned this. And then...one day...the whole world changes, and you know nothing." ---- Having fled the defeat at the Green Gulch, Darius and Jerico, believing themselves the last two paladins of their kind, must separate once more in order to survive. While Jerico rushes to the aid of Lord Arthur and the siege at his Castle of Caves, Darius travels east, determined to remove the bounty on his head. But on his way, he encounters a young priest following an older way of faith, whose desire for their return will risk destruction upon all the North. THE OLD WAYS by David Dalglish Sacrifice must be made in blood.

Something snapped. He let the arrow fly. The night Thomas Rhymer’s young sister is stolen away by shadows and smoke, he discovers there’s more to life than the fields and forests he knows so well. If he has any hope of rescuing Alissa, he must first cross into a realm where magic is lifeblood, and where shadows dance with dragonfire. With the help of the seelie faery Thistledown, Thomas embarks on a treacherous quest, deep into the heart of war-raved Albion. But getting his sister back means pledging aid to Mab, the usurped Queen of the Old Ways, against the tyranny of the Dark Prince. Yet danger and deceit lie around every corner, and some secrets are better left untold.

At the end of the Red River War, any lingering vestige of the fierce Indian hegemony over the Southern Plains was completely crushed and the tribes of native people were now restricted to government-controlled reservations in Oklahoma Territory. The abrupt change left vacant thousands of acres of unclaimed land which the frontier settlers of Texas and other states began to move into and claim as their own. Old customs die hard, however, and for the next few years of transition, there were still echoes of the old ways reverberating across the land.

Robert Sass has been studying and practicing Heathenry for twenty years. The goal of this book is to educate Heathens on ""how to do"" Heathenry, based on a historical perspective first. How to do Sumble and Blot based on historical passages, as well as educating Heathens on the various Germanic Heathen calendars that survived from the 8th, 9th, and 10th centuries. Truly bringing the Old Ways into Heathenry based on solid research, as oppossed to just saying ""We do the Old Ways."" If this book does not have at least ten times as many historical sources, Edda, and Saga passages quoted than any other Asatru 101 book on the market, I will be most disappointed. I quote sources left and right. Studying where our Ancestors left off is essential.
