Ice

From October 15 to April 15, 2012, we were pleased to present Robert Macfarlane’s essay “Ice,” excerpted from The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot, published in the United States by Viking Press. Our agreement with the publisher covered only this limited period, and so the text is no longer available on Places.
