Between The Sunset And The Sea - Simon Ingram
In this compelling book, Simon Ingram explores how mountains captured the western imagination, using his own adventures to weave a powerful narrative of our love affair with mountains and the outdoors life.
“I watched the mirror for a last view, for now, of the frozen mountains of Glen Coe. As the road bent and the outline of Buachaille Etive Mor slid into sight, I did what I always did, and always would. I felt for that flutter of awe and that indefinable, unmistakable quickening of the pulse.”
"Rich, thought-provoking and lyrical."
"Almost Tolkienian in delivery... Between the Sunset and the Sea turns 16 mountain climbs into a form of poetry. History and mythology are given room to breathe alongside landscapes written as fine art, not in broad strokes."
"A welcome and refreshing addition to the increasingly crowded field of New Nature Writing. Warm, poetic and humane yet shivery with the vertiginous thrill and allure that mountains cast over some of us."
