    Landmarks (Audiobook) by Robert Macfarlane
    English | March 5, 2015 | ASIN: B00TR1QJY4 | M4B@64 kbps | 8 hrs 50 mins | 242 MB

    Narrator: Roy McMillan | Genre: Nonfiction/Travels/Language

    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.

    The audiobook version contains an exclusive bonus chapter - a recording of Finlay MacLeod (novelist, historian, broadcaster, archivist, and one of the dedicatees of Landmarks) reading words and definitions from his Peat Glossary for the Isle of Lewis.

    This hoard of rare and evocative terms was one of the inspiring documents for the book.

    Finlay's voice is also used as a divider between chapters, and the other glossaries in the text are bracketed with appropriate sound effects.
