He has also taken filming expeditions to Mount Kilimanjaro, Bhutan, Afghanistan and the Mexican Sierra Madre. His most recent book, The Green Road into the Trees, won the Thwaites Wainwright Prize for UK Nature and Travel Writing. 'Everywhere Thomson goes, he finds good tales to tell...'

"He is an illuminating companion...frequently comic, his voice is original and engaging; proof that it is the walker, not the path, that counts." * Independent * "An immensely enjoyable book: curious, articulate, intellectually playful and savagely candid." * The Spectator * "He records more than impressions: there are fascinating excursions into neglected areas of British history, and conversations with hippies, travellers and farmers, which makes Mr Thomson's journey a joy to follow." * Country Life * "Often funny and always enlightening" -- Candida Lycett Green * Countryfile * "I would love to walk with Thomson" -- John Sutherland * Financial Times *
