Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


In this masterpiece of nature writing, Nan Shepherd describes her journeys into the Cairngorm mountains of Scotland. Encountering 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.

Composed during the Second World War, the manuscript of The Living Mountain lay untouched for more than thirty years before it was finally published.
