The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd
The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd
33 of 34 people found the following review helpful
if you've reached the point of near boredom with the thousands of macho books of near death, tragedy and successful climbs which are typical of biographies and novels of the mountains, then you will find this a breath a fresh air.
Nan's use of language is poetic and beautifully visual and completely different from anything you will usually read about living and enjoying the mountains.

This is a must read for anyone who loves the Cairngorms, Scotland, or mountains in general. But if you simply have a love of beautiful language then you will find this a perfect introduction to the wilderness.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential guide, 31 Dec 2010
This is a very useful book for both quick reference and taking with you on a trip in the hills. I bought this book after being instructed by Mike on an ML Refresher and his knowledge on the mountain environment is extensive. This is a really easy to read book suitable for anyone who is interested in learning more about Snowdonia without being baffled by science.
