Wainwright Prize long list

The long list has been published for the Wainwright Prize for the best book of travel, nature or outdoors writing focused on Britain. John Lewis-Stempel, as I predicted, is on it for The Wood (Doubleday). The 13 titles also include The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Kay (Hamish Hamilton), a “book of spells” that has worked magic in encouraging children and their schools to reconnect with the natural world, and Owl Sense by Miriam Darlington (see earlier post). The short list will be published on July 5 and the winner named on August 2.
