Description

Collects a body of Shepherd’s work which has never been published in book form. The editor of this volume, Charlotte Peacock, found many of these gems when researching for the Nan Shepherd biography ‘Into the Mountain’, including a brilliant and moving short story, ‘Descent from the Cross’; a series of ‘field writings’ – written at the same time, and in the same style as, ‘The Living Mountain’; 15 poems, never seen before; an entertaining piece on the poetry of Hugh MacDiarmid and, a haunting description of ‘Wild Geese in Glen Callater’.
