Landmarks è il titolo di un libro di Robert Macfarlane, naturalista e scrittore di viaggi (Hamish Hamilton). "Landmarks is about the language of landscape, built around glossaries, words concerned with water, mountains, woods, plains, edgelands, and so on. Inspired by a collection of peat vocabulary, then expanded into a trove of place-language from The Hebrides, the book arranges and displays a cornucopia of terms from Gaelic, Irish, Manx, Welsh and dozens of British county dialects. The languages of forestry, mountaineering, archaeology and geology mix with the coinages of poets". Horatio Clare, telegraph.
