PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Stories, folklore, literature, history and geology abound in a beguiling word-lover's guide to the British landscape. From ait to zawn, by way of jackstraw, clitter, cowbelly, shiver, swag, tolmen, and tor: a captivating journey through the story of over 100 words. From those used to describe geological features to the rich, poetic and, increasingly, forgotten local words for places and landscapes. Each word is illustrated with an atmospheric colour photograph, forming a visual glossary of landscapes explored by the author; from the waterlogged fens to the white sands of the Western Isles. Arranged by region; covering words and features from England, Scotland and Wales.
