The Ramblers by Aidan Donnelley Rowley Book Summary:
For fans of J. Courtney Sullivan, Meg Wolitzer, Claire Messud, and Emma Straub, a gorgeous and absorbing novel of a trio of confused souls struggling to find themselves and the way forward in their lives, set against the spectacular backdrop of contemporary New York City. Set in the most magical parts of Manhattan—the Upper West Side, Central Park, Greenwich Village—The Ramblers explores the lives of three lost souls, bound together by friendship and family. During the course of one fateful Thanksgiving week, a time when emotions run high and being with family can be a mixed blessing, Rowley’s sharply defined characters explore the moments when decisions are deliberately made, choices accepted, and pasts reconciled. Clio Marsh, whose bird-watching walks through Central Park are mentioned in New York Magazine, is taking her first tentative steps towards a relationship while also looking back to the secrets of her broken childhood. Her best friend, Smith Anderson, the seemingly-perfect daughter of one of New York’s wealthiest families, organizes the lives of others as her own has fallen apart. And Tate Pennington has returned to the city, heartbroken but determined to move ahead with his artistic dreams. Rambling through the emotional chaos of their lives, this trio learns to let go of the past, to make room for the future and the uncertainty and promise that it holds. The Ramblers is a love letter to New York City—an accomplished, sumptuous novel about fate, loss, hope, birds, friendship, love, the wonders of the natural world and the mysteries of the human spirit.

Gone to the Country by Ray Allen Book Summary:
Gone to the Country chronicles the life and music of the New Lost City Ramblers, a trio of city-bred musicians who helped pioneer the resurgence of southern roots music during the folk revival of the late 1950s and 1960s. Formed in 1958 by Mike Seeger, John Cohen, and Tom Paley, the Ramblers introduced the regional styles of southern ballads, blues, string bands, and bluegrass to northerners yearning for a sound and an experience not found in mainstream music. Ray Allen interweaves biography, history, and music criticism to follow the band from its New York roots to their involvement with the commercial folk music boom. Allen details their struggle to establish themselves amid critical debates about traditionalism brought on by their brand of folk revivalism. He explores how the Ramblers ascribed notions of cultural authenticity to certain musical practices and performers and how the trio served as a link between southern folk music and northern urban audiences who had little previous exposure to rural roots styles. Highlighting the role of tradition in the social upheaval of mid-century America, Gone to the Country draws on extensive interviews and personal correspondence with band members and digs deep into the Ramblers' rich trove of recordings.

Music from the True Vine by Bill C. Malone Book Summary:
A musician, documentarian, scholar, and one of the founding members of the influential folk revival group the New Lost City Ramblers, Mike Seeger (1933-2009) spent more than fifty years collecting, performing, and commemorating the culture and folk music of white and black southerners, which he called "music from the true vine." In this fascinating biography, Bill Malone explores the life and musical contributions of folk artist Seeger, son of musicologists Charles and Ruth Crawford Seeger and brother of folksingers Pete and Peggy Seeger. Malone argues that Seeger, while not as well known as his brother, may be more important to the history of American music through his work in identifying and giving voice to the people from whom the folk revival borrowed its songs. Seeger recorded and produced over forty albums, including the work of artists such as Libba Cotten, Tommy Jarrell, Dock Boggs, and Maybelle Carter. In 1958, with an ambition to recreate the southern string bands of the twenties, he formed the New Lost City Ramblers, helping to inspire the urban folk revival of the sixties. Music from the True Vine presents Seeger as a gatekeeper of American roots music and culture, showing why generations of musicians and fans of traditional music regard him as a mentor and an inspiration.

A History of the Peak District Moors by David Hey Book Summary:
“A superb new book . . . explores the history of Britain’s first National Park from the Stone Age to the modern day . . . lavishly illustrated.”—Reflections Magazine The moors of the Peak District provide some of the finest walking country in England. The pleasure of rambling across them is enhanced by a knowledge of their history, ranging from prehistoric times and the middle ages to their conversion for grouse shooting and the struggle for the “right to roam” in modern times. This distinctive landscape is not an untouched, natural relic for it has been shaped by humans over the centuries. Now it is being conserved as part of Britain’s first National Park; much of it is in the care of The National Trust. The book covers all periods of time from prehistory to the present, for a typical moorland walk might take in the standing stones of a prehistoric stone circle, a medieval boundary marker, a guide stoop dated 1709, the straight walls of nineteenth-century enclosure, a row of Victorian grouse butts, a long line of flagstones brought in by helicopter, and very much more besides. “This is no ‘desk-based study’ but the product of a lifetime of living, working and researching in or immediately adjacent to the moors.”—The Local Historian “David writes with a contagious enthusiasm. This generously illustrated book roams amongst the best—and lesser-known—moorland features . . . a guide par excellence.”—Peak Advertiser “Few tomes can have been quite as comprehensive as David’s. Within these pages are Romans and Vikings, railways and canals, ramblers and World War Two soldiers.”—The Star (Sheffield)
Mass Trespass on Kinder Scout in 1932 by Geoffrey Glasby D.Sc. Book Summary:
Victorian Britons knew all about walking. It was part of daily life. However, organized rambling was a totally different matter. G.H.B. Ward (1876-1957) began life as an engineer at a local steel works in Sheffield. In the autumn of 1900, he placed an advert in a newspaper inviting people to join him on a moorland walk. As a result, 13 people turned up for what is thought to be the first ever organized public walk - around the Kinder Scout plateau on 2 September 1900. This led to the formation of the Sheffield Clarion Ramblers which is recognized as the first working class ramblers club and which became the forerunner of the great ramblers’ movements we know today. As one Clarion man wrote of the group's first ramble in 1900: "If our feet were on the heather, our hearts and hopes were with the stars." This mystical communion with the open air, with sore feet on the pathway to Heaven, is reflected on every splendid page of The Best of the Sheffield Clarion Ramblers' Handbooks. The book's editor, David Sissons, has devoted 12 years to researching Ward, who, as a good socialist, refused an OBE for his services to the great outdoors but accepted an honorary M.A. from Sheffield University which was awarded on his deathbed! Sissons describes the old man's outlook as "applied Wordsworth, putting into practice the poet's ideals, trying to raise the working class to a higher level". Ward was obsessed with heights, distances and directions. For every hour he spent on the moors, he would spend another burrowing in the archives through Enclosure Acts and Charity Commissioners' reports. In 1907, Ward participated in the illegal mass trespass on Bleaklow, a fore runner of the 1932 mass trespass. In 1910, he became the founding editor of the Sheffield Clarion Ramblers Club Handbook and chaired the Sheffield Clarion Ramblers until his death in 1957. In 1926, he founded the Sheffield and District Federation of the Ramblers Association. In 1945, the Ramblers Association bought him the summit of Lose Hill in the Peak District which was named "Ward's Piece" and which he subsequently presented to the National Trust. Ward also worked on the purchase of the Longshaw Estate in Derbyshire and was a founder member of the local Youth Hostel Association. He was also an activist for walkers’ rights and a Labour Party politician. Ward was undoubtedly the dominant figure in the early campaign for walkers’ rights in Britain. For those interested, the Best of the Sheffield Clarion Ramblers' Handbooks which he edited for more than 50 years can be ordered from the Yorkshire Post Bookshop. The Handbooks are just four-and-a-half inches by three and small enough to slip into a jacket top pocket and are bibles in the rambling world. They include information on place names, local folk lore and the history of the moors and valleys of the Peak District. Nominally, they were just a prospectus of scheduled walks, with the occasional warning that "only the hardiest ramblers must attend", but they were widely read. The editor of the books, David Sissons, devoted 12 years to researching Ward. Sissons describes the old man's outlook as "applied Wordsworth, putting into practice the poet's ideals, trying to raise the working class to a higher level". Interestingly, in his book, Across the Derbyshire Moors published in 1945, Ward ranked the best full day’s walk available from Sheffield to be round Kinder Scout from Edale Station by Jacob’s Ladder, William Clough, the Snake and Alport Bridge to Hope. He estimated the distance to be 20 miles which he considered to be equivalent to 25 ‘Derbyshire miles’ taking into account the energy used for the ups and downs. To enjoy this walk, he recommended that one left Edale not later than 9.30 a.m. and returned from Hope by train or bus but not before 8 p.m. Clearly, the ramblers of Ward’s generation were a cut above the modern generation! The Old Nags Head at Edale is the official start of the Pennine Way.
