Books Info:

Landmarks free pdf Landmarks is Robert Macfarlane's joyous meditation on words, landscape and the relationship between the two - now available in a beautiful new Winter edition for Christmas 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. Praise for Robert Macfarlane: "He has a poet's eye and a prose style that will make many a novelist burn with envy." (John Banville, Observer). "I'll read anything Macfarlane writes" (David Mitchell, Independent). "Every movement needs stars. In [Macfarlane] we surely have one, burning brighter with each book." (Telegraph). "[Macfarlane] is a godfather of a cultural moment." (Sunday Times).
