OT:Land Lines - finding UK's favourite nature book
Oct 28, 2017, 09:55
Apologies in advance if off topic. Nature's relationship to ancient places used to be discussed here quite a lot (in the good old days). It's difficult to choose from so many excellent reads so am going with something contemporary about Orkney's wildlife and landscape; also about a young woman's personal journey overcoming alcohol addiction - The Outrun by Amy Liptrot.

"Land Lines: finding the UK's favourite book about nature
For hundreds of years writers have been capturing the wonder of the natural world in poetry and prose, and exploring our changing relationship with nature. With a new research project Land Lines now taking a deeper look at this popular genre, we’re asking the public to help us find the UK’s favourite book about nature.
What’s your favourite book about the natural world? Is it one from your childhood, or that later inspired a life-long love of nature? Or something that you’ve read more recently that has rekindled a connection with the world of wildlife.
Simply enter your nomination, which has to be by a UK-based writer or by an author who writes about the UK's landscape and/or wildlife, below by midnight on the 30 November 2017"
