An inveterate armchair traveller ever since my Soviet childhood, I have always loved maps, which used to provide me with an imaginary window to the outside world – the only one available in the USSR
Bonnett’s previous book, Off the Map, was a thoroughly readable study of unmapped areas: uninhabited cities, liminal spaces.
When Wilkinson set off to become the Telegraph’s Islamabad correspondent in 2006, the War on Terror was in full swing and Pakistan was caught up in the new, post-9/11 world
Dartmoor National Park might appear wild, but it’s the lines that give it away. Ancient walls, reaves, tracks, terraces, tin mining gorges, leats... they all create vivid lines which tell deep stories about thousands of years of human habitation
Barry Smith is a self-confessed islomaniac and a fixation with islands and all they represent is ‘one of the most difficult compulsions to be cured of’
‘Laughter has to be the key’ – that’s not a message often found on the first page of a book about extinct and critically endangered species, but this is no ordinary book
