Simon Winchester
Land—whether meadow or mountainside, parkland or pasture, suburb or city—is central to our existence. It quite literally underlies and underpins everything.
In his new book Land, Simon Winchester examines what we human beings are doing—and have done—with the billions of acres that together make up the solid surface of our planet.
He looks at how we acquire land, how we steward it, how and why we fight over it, and finally, how we can come to share it.
Simon Winchester is the author of numerous books. Among them are the best-selling The Professor and The Madman, Pacific and A Crack In The Edge Of The World. We’ve spoken with Winchester about the last two previously on Writer’s Voice.
