By Robert Macfarlane 

Words are grained into our landscapes, and landscapes are grained into our words.

Landmarks is about the power of language to shape our sense of place. It is a field guide to the literature of nature, and a glossary containing thousands of remarkable words used in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales to describe land, nature and weather.

Travelling from Cumbria to the Cairngorms, and exploring the landscapes of Roger Deakin, J. A. Baker, Nan Shepherd and others, Robert Macfarlane shows that language, well used, is a keen way of knowing landscape, and a vital means of coming to love it.

NOTICE AND WONDER

Such a wonderful book that has opened my eyes (inner as well as exterior) to what we need to see. Robefrt MacFarlane has the understanding of a contemplative.
