Many of us enjoy walking along a familiar path. Our spirits lift as our mind settles and our soul is restored by the beauty of the natural landscape.

In Path a solitary figure walks along ancient pathways, between slender trees, across open hills. As the earth itself provides support and reassurance, they walk through isolation and uncertainty towards an understanding that they - we - are not alone, but part of the fabric of the world.

With evocative photography and illustrations inspired by the pathways across the South Downs in rural England, Path is a contemplative journey written in poetic prose that embodies the steady rhythms and joy of walking, and captures our reciprocal relationship with the land.

Now in paperback, Path features a brand new preface by the author, Louisa Thomsen Brits, that reveals the unexpected journey she undertook just days after the book was first published in 2018 - and how her own words helped her to navigate a different kind of path through diagnosis and treatment towards healing.
Born in Uganda to a Danish mother and English father, Louisa Thomsen Brits is an author, amateur naturalist, outdoor swimmer, and mother of four. She has been a restaurant and arts critic and a tribal belly-dance teacher. Louisa is interested in our response to the natural world rooted in our humanity, in community, craft, the confluence of poetry and science, domestic and wild. She writes about our common life and the rhythms and rituals that unite and define us all.
