Into The Mountain

‘Taking subtle account of Nan Shepherd’s commitment to mystery, and to the virtuous partiality of knowledge; as she could never know the Cairngorms ‘totally’, nor does Peacock set out to know (or tell) Nan Shepherd totally.

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.’

Robert Macfarlane.
