The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd( Book )

15 editions published between 1977 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Living Mountain is a lyrical testament in praise of the Cairngorms. It is a work deeply rooted in Nan Shepherd's knowledge of the natural world, and a poetic and philosophical meditation on our longing for high and holy places. Drawing on different perspectives of the mountain environment, Shepherd makes the familiar strange and the strange awe-inspiring. Her sensitivity and powers of observation put her into the front rank of nature writing"--Publisher's description
The weatherhouse by Nan Shepherd( Book )

12 editions published between 1930 and 2018 in English and Italian and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The women of the tiny town of Fetter-Rothnie have grown used to a life without men, and none more so than the tangle of mothers and daughters, spinsters and widows living at the Weatherhouse. Returned from war with shellshock, Garry Forbes is drawn into their circle as he struggles to build a new understanding of the world from the ruins of his grief. In The Weatherhouse, Nan Shepherd paints an exquisite portrait of a community coming to terms with the brutal losses of war, and the small tragedies, yearnings, and delusions that make up a life. The second installment in The Grampian Quartet, The Weatherhouse is widely considered Shepherd's masterpiece and one of the most important works of Scottish modernism

POETRY TEXTS & ANTHOLOGIES. Hill-walking was Shepherd's great love; her single collection of poetry In the Cairngorms (1934) expresses an intensity of deep kinship with nature. They are poems written with the perception of one who has climbed the mountains and truly knows them. The poetry has many religious notes - references to 'the Light' and 'the Presence' in the hills; though these references could seem Christian, they are perhaps expressions of a broader spirituality - Shepherd herself likened her journey to a Buddhist pilgrimage. This volume speaks to lovers of poetry and of nature
