'The finest book ever written on nature and landscape in Britain' Guardian In this masterpiece of nature writing Nan Shepherd describes her journeys into the Cairngorm mountains of Scotland. There she encounters a world that can be breathtakingly beautiful at times and shockingly harsh at others. Her intense poetic prose explores and records the rocks rivers creatures and hidden aspects of this remarkable landscape. Shepherd spent a lifetime in search of the 'essential nature' of the Cairngorms; her quest led her to write this classic meditation on the magnificence of mountains and on our imaginative relationship with the wild world around us. Composed during the Second World War the manuscript of The Living Mountain lay untouched for more than thirty years before it was finally published.

Review:

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

"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)

"[A] masterpiece of Scottish writing" (Anita Sethi Observer)

"A masterpiece . . . Amongst the greatest works of nature writing to come out of Britain" (Chitra Ramaswamy Scotsman)

"Reading [The Living Mountain] seems to me to explain why reading is so important. And odd. And necessary. And not like anything else. There is no substitute for reading" (JEANETTE WINTERSON)

Book Description:

A beautiful, collectable gift edition of the masterpiece of Scottish nature writing. Introduced by Robert Macfarlane and with an afterword by Jeanette Winterson
