Shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize 2015 Shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize 2016 Landmarksis Robert Macfarlane's joyous meditation on words, landscape and the relationship between the two. Words are grained into our landscapes, and landscapes are grained into our words. Landmarksis 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.… (més)

I think this book will gather another half star as I flick though it looking at the words lists again. I took my time with the book - reading the word lists as well as the chapters, a few each night to drift with into the night. ( )

I like this guy, I like how he thinks and how he describes what he sees. He is an outside kind of guy, big boots, Anorak, hiking staff you know the kind, but real smart and heartfelt. I really do like him. This book is about words for things seen outside like woods, rivers, trees and other external phenomena. It is comprehensive and exhaustive if at times exhausting.

I am very reluctant to say a negative word or imply that this is anything less that marvellous but I did find it a bit tedious. And I accept wholeheartedly that it is my failing not his. ( )

A beautiful and expansive book about the breadth of language, particularly that which relates to landscape. Complete with glossaries of precise terms from the UK and Ireland, the book also tells the story of different people who lived with a love of language and landscape. Keenly written with humour and a literary flair. Wonderful. ( )

I listened to this book on audio through the NYPL.

It put me into a journey of "tweets" and my mind was able to wonder and wander. Some of the inspiring moments led to the following:

- "The vibrancy of perception" and the perception of landscape is fascinating. We love what we particularly know....read more at "Landmarks" by Robert MacFarlane and get lost in the woods of words, the roots of words, the stems of words. take a journey into a luscious land

- The stretch of space above the earth is Sky.
I am enjoying naming things today, in part from contemplating my Landscape thanks to Robert MacFarlane
