Merryn Glover in conversation about her newest work,The Hidden Fires,with University of Aberdeen Regius Professor of English and Scottish Literature Alison Lumsden. In The Hidden Fires, Merryn Glover undertakes the challenge of walking in the Cairngorms, with Nan Shepherd as companion and guiding light. Following in the footsteps and contours of The Living Mountain, she explores the same landscapes and themes as Shepherd’s seminal work. This is a journey separated by time but unified by space and purpose, a conversation between two women across nearly a century that explores how entering the life of a mountain can illuminate our own.
