I've spoken and blogged about this book many times, and you can now listen to extracts from it on Radio 4 as it has been selected, around 35 years after its first UK publication as the 'Book of the Week'.
A heads-up that, to my delight, Barry Lopez's masterpiece Arctic Dreams (1986) will be Book of the Week on @BBCRadio4 this week, starting 09.45am today.— Robert Macfarlane (@RobGMacfarlane) June 21, 2021
The book––and the writer––that made me a writer.
Barry passed away in December this year.https://t.co/Eo8vKQKIV0
Barry Lopez is someone whose work has been important to me throughout my career.

The GeogLive! Team are busy planning the next GeogLive! event, which will be at 5-6pm on Wednesday 30th June.
This is part of the activity of the GA's Early Years and Primary Phase Committee to support teachers who may or may not be GA members (but you need to be a GA member)
They have chosen to focus on fieldwork, prompted by Iain Freeland’s comments in the blog about geography in outstanding primary schools, and feedback from those who attended the first event. They will also, of course, be referring to the Research Report published by Ofsted yesterday. We will be using the same format as at our first GeogLive! event, as this worked well for us and provoked plenty of positive feedback from participants.
If you are able, and would like to join the event, then please do register through this link below.

The book is still available to purchase, and this blog has shared relevant stories linked to the chapters and updates over the years. Some of the ideas have been adapted and used by others since, and they may not even know that the book was the first time they were shared in print.
Thanks for reading. There will continue to be occasional postings as the book is still available to purchase.
