Among the Summer Snows : A Highlands Walk, Hardback Book

Among the Summer Snows : A Highlands Walk Hardback


Christopher Nicholson's first book of nature writing is a beautiful account of an unusual obsession.

In 2016 he spent August searching for the remaining snows of the Scottish Highlands.

His account of his solitary walk is by turns funny, fascinating and inspiring.

A meditation on walking, mountains, snow and our changing climate, Nicholson also turns his curious eye on nature-lovers themselves.

What are we looking for when we walk and what is it we want from nature?

What is it we see and what is it we miss? What remains when we are gone and what have we lost from the landscape forever?
