As I walk paths I often wonder about their origins, the impulses that have led to their creation, the records they yield of customary journeys, and the secrets they keep of adventures, meetings and departures. --Quoted from Robert Mcfarlane' book The Old Ways.

I have some problems with the clause in bold. Do them mean, "the records of customary journeys that they yield", and "the secrets of adventures, meetings and departures that they keep"? Or, something else? Could anybody help me out?

    I think you understand the passage very well, suspection111. The order of the words in Mcfarlane's book probably confused you.
