About my books

Into the Mountain

Into the Mountain is the first biography of Scottish writer and poet, Nan Shepherd.

Now best known for her masterpiece, The Living Mountain, she faded into literary obscurity during her lifetime and guarded her privacy fiercely.

This book unravels the mysteries, dispels some of the rumours and gives insight into the life and work of this extraordinary writer.

Into the Mountain A Life of Nan Shepherd front cover


Rich, wise, subtle and valuable, Into the Mountain is a biography of revelation (by glimpses) in the best sense, rather than ‘exposure’. A clever unfolding of a little-known life and the landscapes in which it was lived.

Underland, The Old Ways

Throughout, Charlotte Peacock traces how Shepherd’s life flowed into her literature, tackling topics of class and gender in her three novels. Best of all, this biography turns the reader back to Nan Shepherd’s brilliant books themselves.

The Guardian

Wild Geese

Much of Nan Shepherd’s work was never published outside local magazines and journals. You can find it now in Wild Geese, my edited collection of her writing.

Some of the poems, I found while researching Into the Mountain. They are printed here for the first time in any publication.
