Product description

Review

Publisher's description. The number one bestselling book from the author of The Old Ways. This is a celebration of the unique relationship between language and place; a field guide to nature writers from Roger Deakin to Nan Shepherd; and a glossary containing thousands of remarkable, poetic, funny, peculiar and endangered words to describe the natural world. ― Penguin

Thoughtful and lyrical writing . . . It's gorgeous -- Katy Guest ―
Independent on Sunday

Enormously pleasurable, deeply moving . . .
Landmarks is both a bid to save our rich hoard of landscape language, and a blow struck for the power of a deep creative relationship to place ― Financial Times

His writing has a confidence and enjoyment, a passionate purpose . . . he celebrates our vast, but evaporating, vocabulary for the landscape

Daily Telegraph

A story like this is salutary...
Landmarks is a book that ought to be read by policymakers, educators, armchair environmentalists and active conservationists the world over. ― Guardian

The writing is full of clarity and internal reflections and the chapters ripple over into each other like a linked chain of mountain pools.... What is remarkable about these words is how precise they are, and how deeply local. They feel as if they somehow grew out of the land itself. A delight. ―
Sunday Times Magazine

The mood is one of celebration... [Landmarks is] the product of an active academic intelligence and emotional generosity, irradiated by
a profound sense of wonder... Few books give such a sense of enchantment; it is a book to give to many, and to return to repeatedlyIndependent
