Land is embedded in a multitude of material and cultural contexts, through which the human experience of landscape emerges. Ethnographers, with their
participative methodologies, long-term co-residence, and concern with the
quotidian aspects of the places where they work, are well positioned to
describe landscapes in this fullest of senses. The contributors explore
how landscapes become known primarily through movement and journeying
rather than stasis. Working across four continents, they explain how
landscapes are constituted and recollected in the stories people tell of
their journeys through them, and how, in turn, these stories are embedded
in landscaped forms.
