In August Yi-Fu published a new book entitled, “Humanist Geography: An Individual’s Search for Meaning”. He writes that it is a final testament of all that he has learned and encountered as a geographer. In October he was honored with the Vautrin-Lud International Geography Prize at the International Festival of Geography in Saint-Dié-des-Vosges, France. The Vautrin-Lud International Geography Prize, considered the Nobel Prize for geography, is the highest honor in the field of geography.
