One more from the road…

It’s always the way: compile a roundup of new books and, as soon as it’s online, you hear of a book (or books) that you’d like to have included. So it is with Local (Eye Books, £12.99, published yesterday), in which the well-travelled adventurer Alastair Humphreys tells of his search for nature and wildness “in the unprepossessing surroundings covered by the Ordnance Survey map around his own home”. The cover has an endorsement from Robert Macfarlane: “Agile, wryly funny and wise.” Humphreys has been writing about his year of discoveries in Adventure magazine (owned by the travel company Intrepid) and The Daily Telegraph.
