‘This uplifting memoir is testament that in life there are times when there is nothing for it but to scale that mountain’ – The Herald Best Summer Reads 2019

In 1997, at the age of 24, Sarah lost her mother to breast cancer. Alone and adrift in the world, she very nearly gave up hope – but she’d made a promise to her mother that she would keep going no matter what. So she turned to the beautiful, dangerous, forbidding mountains of her native Scotland.

    - Tristan Gooley, author of The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues & Signs and Wild Signs and Star Paths

  • ‘An excellent memoir … vivid and honest … so much more than just a book about walking and climbing in the mountains. Quite frankly it’s heart-breaking at times. Sarah Jane Douglas writes beautifully, her descriptive passages of what she sees and experiences on the mountains are some of the best I’ve read’
