About the Book
The Hidden Fires: A Cairngorms Journey with Nan Shepherd is a response to Nan Shepherd’s The Living Mountain. Drawing from the author's upbringing in the Himalayas and gradual adaptation to Scotland’s hills, Merryn Glover contrasts her own Cairngorm experiences with Shepherd’s.
Exploring the same landscapes and themes of the classic work, she challenges the reader to new understandings of this mountain range and its significance in contemporary Scotland.
