The work of Alfred Wainwright is commemorated in a prize for writing that reflects the core values of the British countryside. This year's winner is Amy Liptrot for her book, The Outrun, which documents her life on and beyond Orkney - its Mainland and Papa Westray. The natural, restorative effects of island life helped overcome crises connected with her parents and with alcoholism. Details are in The Orcadian.
