Praise for Between the Sunset and the Sea: A View of 16 British Mountains (HarperCollins, 2015)

"A mountaineering book free of machismo is a rare thing. Not just painstakingly researched, but well written... this is the work of a polymath mountain lover with a backpack sized curiosity. For anyone who has ever found themselves mysteriously possessed by mountains, this is an intrepid, original book that seeks to explain why."

THE TIMES

 ’Almost Tolkienian in delivery... Between the Sunset and the Sea turns 16 mountain climbs into a form of poetry. History and mythology are given room to breathe alongside landscapes written as fine art,
not in broad strokes.’ 

 BBC COUNTRYFILE

”Wonderful."

CLARE BALDING

 "Rich, thought-provoking and lyrical."

SCOTLAND OUTDOORS

"A welcome and refreshing addition to the increasingly crowded field of New Nature Writing. Warm, poetic and humane yet shivery with the vertiginous thrill and allure that mountains
cast over some of us."

STUART MACONIE

"Tremendous... passionate, idiosyncratic and thoroughly enjoyable."

GEOGRAPHICAL

  "Accessible and refreshing... written in an engaging style that quickly takes the reader into its confidence. The endearing confession of an authentic mountain addict."
