Review:

Publisher's website 2018

A strikingly original debut from a tremendous new talent, Robert Moor explores how trails help us understand the world, from invisible ant trails to hiking paths that span continents and oceans, from migration routes to the Internet.

For seven years Moor travelled the globe, exploring trails of all kinds. He learned the tricks of master trail-builders, hunted down long-lost Cherokee trails, and traced the origins of our road networks. Moor interweaves his adventures with findings from science, history, philosophy, and nature writing in every chapter.

This deep search for meaning introduces the reader to experts who work with trails of all kinds, outrageous anecdotes from his own experiences and spectacular descriptions of landscapes and animal behaviour. On Trails gives an eye-opening tour, leaving us with a much richer, prismatic take on what we constantly take for granted: how we get where we're going.
