In this masterly account of her journeys into the Cairngorm mountains, Nan Shepherd describes 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. Shepherd spent a lifetime in search of the 'essential nature' of the Cairngorms. Composed during the Second World War, the manuscript of The Living Mountain lay untouched for more than thirty years before it was finally published.
