'In The Old Straight Track, first published in 1925, Alfred Watkins outlined his concept of ley lines - a network of prehistoric pathways of aligned stone circles, mounds and standing stones criss-crossing the countryside. Since then, the book and its ideas have intrigued and inspired generations of readers, from hill-walkers to new-age occultists. This new edition, with an introduction by Robert Macfarlane, brings a landscape - writing classic to a new audience. It will appeal to all who treasure the mystery of England's ancient landscapes.'
