Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast

«Part discovery, part wonderment, both a travel narrative and a scientific exploration, Linescapes could change the way we perceive our land and its inhabitants forever»

Miriam Darlington, author of Otter Country

«A fascinating work of landscape detection based on entirely straight journeys»

Stephen Moss, Best Nature Books of 2017, Guardian

«Eye-opening and inspiring. Linescapes has utterly transformed my vision of the British countryside. Hugh Warwick offers a compelling primer for rethinking and rewilding our fragmented natural world.»

Roman Krznaric, author of Empathy and Carpe Diem Regained

«In Linescapes, Hugh Warwick has written a gloriously unclassifiable book, a manifesto-adventure-exploration-reflection that manages to be political, passionate, perceptive – and very funny»

Robert Macfarlane
