Description
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. Macfarlane shows that language, well used, is a keen way of knowing landscape and a vital means of coming to love it.

Few books give such a sense of enchantment. INDEPENDENT
