Landmarks - Robert Macfarlane
Landmarks is a joyous meditation on words, landscape and the relationship between the two.
This fabulous book is a field guide to the literature of nature, and a glossary containing thousands of remarkable words used in Britain to describe land, nature and weather. 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.
