Publisher Comments:

A classic eulogy to the beauty and magnificence of the mountains

A lyrical testament in praise of the Cairngorms, this prose meditation testifies to the author's love of the hills and her knowledge of them in all their moods. First published in 1977, 30 years after it was written, it is a work deeply rooted in Nan Shepherd's knowledge of the natural world, and a poetic and philosophical meditation on our longing for high and holy places. Drawing on different perspectives of the mountain environment, Shepherd makes the familiar strange and the strange awe-inspiring. Her sensitivity and powers of observation put her into the front rank of nature writing.

About the Author

Nan Shepherd (1893–1981) was an English lecturer at what is now Aberdeen College of Education. She made many visits to the Cairngorms with students and friends and was a keen member of the Deeside Field Club. Her many further travels included visits to Norway, France, Italy, Greece, and South Africa, but she always returned to the house where she was raised and lived almost all her adult life in the village of West Cults, three miles from Aberdeen on North Deeside.
