Product Details

Praise

…[Stilgoe’s] love of language and the land sees him ploughing through outdated and specialist dictionaries for our benefit, in this illuminating and entertaining book…. Reading this will have you thinking anew about words, as it breaks down both the language and the land that it may originate from or be attached to.—Irish Times

[Y]ou… will find sentences that speak to you so personally as to feel thrilling, almost spookily so.

The Wall Street Journal

Stilgoe’s book champions landscape studies as a discipline founded on curiosity and deep, associative thought, open to byways, discovery, and the occasional absurdity, rewarding for amateurs and seasoned practitioners alike.

Publishers Weekly

Lovers of dictionaries and nature can rejoice in John Stilgoe’s new book.

The Paris Review
