A little book about Paths – Alison Fure

Paths are a form of separation between us and modern life.
They separate us from traffic.
They flow like water to provide us with natural shortcuts and desire lines.
They can allow for a continuity of gardens and be good wildlife corridors.
They can provide a link to the past and the people who used old routes, providing a touchstone for emotional memory.
When we follow in footsteps, we are in harmony with our ancestors.

Alison Fure is a field ecologist specialising in bats.
She is also a walking artist and enjoys showing people new dimensions to their environment.

A New World – cc yeo
