Among the Summer Snows - by Christopher Nicholson (Paperback)

'This is the kind of beautiful writing that transcends form - in this case nature writing - to arrive somewhere improbable and compelling.' Paul Evans, Guardian 'A beautiful book about love and loss, fragility and chance, the wide world and the near world...full of intense light and colour, extraordinary glimpses, moving insights and subtle humour.' Richard Kerridge, author of Cold Blood 'A ravishingly lovely book.' Keggie Carew author of Dadland 'What shines through is a love of wild places without the need to conquer summits or tick lists. It is a love affair that is addictive ... and [Nicholson] expresses it in such a beautiful way in this unusual and evocative narrative.' Active Outdoors 'A glorious little book, beautifully produced by an independent publisher.' The Telegraph 'Haunting, moving, silent, and profoundly beautiful.' The Great Outdoors 'Lyrical and elegiac, this debut is a tender account of an unusual fascination with the remaining snows of the Scottish Highlands. Nicholson offers us a wry, self-aware take on the relationship between humans and the changed (and changing) natural world.' Helen Mort, chair of Boardman Tasker Award judges 'Made me laugh and cry within just a few pages... left me humbled as he revealed a range of other interconnected wonders I never knew about.' Books in Scotland 'Destined to become a classic of mountain literature. Superb.' Chris Townsend, The Great Outdoors 'Strange, beautiful, eerie and unique, this is the best mountain book I've read in years.... as a literary curiosity it deserves all the praise likely to avalanche upon it.' Simon Ingram, Trail magazine 'To read about snow pockets was something that I had never expected that we still had in Scotland. There is more to this book than that though, there are musings on the weather, other walkers and a touching tribute to his late wife too. All through the book are hauntingly beautiful photos of the snow caves that he finds on his walks and the fragments of snow set against the dramatic landscape of the Scottish mountains.' Halfman, Halfbook
