The Living Mountain

Dundee Contemporary Arts



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.

This beautiful hardback edition features gold foil detailing on the cover and is introduced by Robert Macfarlane, with an afterword by Jeanette Winterson.
