After years of secretly daydreaming about it, Jini Reddy, a journalist based in London but with global roots, finally dares to break free of convention and decides to take her 'soul for a stroll'. She delves into the 'wanderlands' of Britain, in search of the magical in nature.

Having kept her fascination with wildness under wraps for many years, she sets off with nothing but her inner compass to guide her, a compass that sends her ricocheting around the country.

Whether gazing upon ancient yews, hiking in the footsteps of the hidden folk, stumbling upon ephemeral land art, immersing herself in a silent soundscape, walking labyrinths, tasting revered waters, or meeting earth wisdom-keepers, Jini experiences Britain as a pilgrim, constantly exploring fresh territory: wild spaces that intrigue with their mythical or mystical overtones, or bewitch with their unearthly beauty. She also meets those who commune with the wild, through poetry or magic, these being her guides to experiencing the natural world in gentler, more enchanting ways.

Plotting a path through Britain's natural realm with candour, curiosity, trust and a touch of grit, this is a book in which the heart leads, all things are possible and the wild comes in from the cold, as Jini searches for the spirit of the magic of nature.
