This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

An autobiographical essay on the importance of giving and receiving books - from the bestselling author of Landmarks and The Old Ways

Every book is a kind of gift to its reader, and the act of giving books is charged with a special emotional resonance. It is a meeting of three minds (the giver, the author, the recipient), an exchange of intellectual and psychological currency, that leaves both participants the richer. Here Robert Macfarlane recounts the story of a book he was given as a young man, and how he managed eventually to return the favour, though never repay the debt.

From one of our most lyrical writers comes a short and intensely moving essay on the power, beauty and value of the given book.
