Renowned for creating art outdoors from natural materials, British artist Andy Goldsworthy offers an inside look at an intriguing project. Following the route along which sheep were once driven from Scotland to markets in the north of England, he builds, dismantles, and rebuilds along the way a red sandstone arch in a variety of locations. 30 full-color illustrations.

As a British expatriate, I love America, but this book summons some pleasant thoughts of home. This is the kind of book that makes you want to experience the art described in the flesh, so to speak. The photography is excellent - with a quirky humour that's very engaging. Rather like Goldsworthy himself. The other guy's contribution is less impressive. I'm looking forwards to catching up with more of Goldsworthy's work. He has a sympathy for nature and a sense of the absurd that may make him a somewhat marginal figure for some, but to me places him formly in a long line of British eccentrics (think of all those C18th grottoes!).
