The Lie of the Land
2011 Outdoor Book of the Year
Wednesday, 01 June, 2011. Filed under: Lie of the Land
The National Trust and Hay Festival have announced their top “Outdoors Books of the Year” and we’re very pleased and excited to tell you that Ian Vince’s under-the-field guide to the British landscape, The Lie of the Land - which we often casually refer to as the unofficial manual of the BLC - has emerged as one of the winners.
The endorsement, the result of a month-long poll to find the best recent writing about nature and the outdoors is shared with The Natural Navigator by Tristan Gooley, The Garden in the Clouds by Antony Woodward, Weeds by Richard Mabey and a number of other lovely books written from unique perspectives on the countryside. Hundreds of votes were cast and the winners were revealed at the Hay Festival - Britain’s most famous literary festival.
The British Landscape Club and Ian would like to thank everyone who voted for The Lie of the Land.
