Ring the Hill

Tom Cox

His work has been described by Robert Macfarlane as 'funny, wry and wise, and utterly its own lawmaker' now Tom Cox returns with Ring the Hill, written in his inimitable voice and studded with his trademark humour.

It is a book written around, and about, hills: it includes a northern hill, a European hill, some hills from East Anglia that can barely be called hills at all. Each chapter takes a type of hill whether it be knoll, cap, cliff, tor, bump or even mere hillock as a starting point for one of Cox's characteristically unpredictable and wide-ranging explorations.

These can lead to an account of an intimate relationship with a beach, a journey into Cox's past or a lesson from an expert in what goes into the mapping of hills themselves. Because a good walk in the hills is never just about the hills: you never know where it might take you. 340 pages.
