Product description

Review

"Most works of mountain literature are written by men, and most of them focus on the goal of the summit. Nan Shepherd's aimless, sensual exploration of the Cairngorms is bracingly different." (Robert Macfarlane)

"The finest book ever written on nature and landscape in Britain." (Jim Perrin Guardian)

"the re-publication of the Living Mountain is long overdue" (The Herald)

"she deserves to be remembered more than she is" (The Herald)

"one of the masterpieces of 20th century nature writing" (The Herald)

"writing strongly and insightfully about the lives of young women" (Robert Crawford Scotland's Books)

"as bracing as water from a mountain stream" (Nicholas Lezard The Guardian)

"I was giddy with something halfway between delight and vertigo... a work of the highest calibre" (Nicholas Lezard The Guardian)

"making magic before your eyes with the English language" (Nicholas Lezard The Guardian)

"I read it and was changed" (Robert McFarlane)

Book Description

A classic eulogy to the beauty and magnificence of the mountains, now reissued as part of the Canongate Canons series
