Into the Mountain: A Life of Nan Shepherd by Charlotte Peacock, the first biography of the writer, is to be published on October 26.
In the 1930s Nan Shepherd was one of Scotland’s best-known writers, and is now featured on the £5 note.
Three novels, The Quarry Wood, The Weatherhouse and A Pass in the Grampians–as well as a volume of poetry, In the Cairngorms–were all published between 1928 and 1934 while she was in her 30s.
Then in 1977, came The Living Mountain, her most influential work.
