The documentary really touched and intrigued me, especially as I would like to find an emotional way of writing about landscape for my third novel, The Right Place.
My sister lives in Aberdeenshire and goes to the Cairngorms all the time. So I told her about it and of course, she had already read Nan's book, The Living Mountain! And she has now sent it to me. I am really looking forward to getting started; I very very rarely read non-fiction books, but I am sure this one will be worth the effort.
This book, published in 1926, is simply gorgeous. It evokes the buzzing, relentless flow of lives in 1920s London, with 15 fantastic illustrations!
Written by Lewis Melville and illustrated by Aubrey Hammond (1894-1940).
