Nan Shepherd's 'The living mountain'

Walton, S (2016) Nan Shepherd's 'The living mountain'. In: Kendal Mountain Festival, 17-20 November 2016, Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal, UK.

Abstract

Dr Samantha Walton looks at Nan Shepherd’s inventive approach to mountaineering, considering what it meant to be a woman walker in the Highlands of the 1940s, and why reaching the summit was the last thing on her mind. Nan Shepherd spent the best part of her life walking in the Cairngorms, and in 'The Living Mountain' she describes the endless and engrossing project of getting to know a mountain using the feet, hands, senses and imagination as a way in.
