Walking the Song
Hamish Brown has been an outdoorsman for more than sixty years. The first person to complete an uninterrupted round of Scotland’s Munros, his account of the feat in Hamish’s Mountain Walk is a classic of Scottish mountain literature. Throughout those years he has contributed articles and essays to many journals and, in this selection, he presents not an autobiography or some overview of life, but a very personal record of his many journeys and interests from his ‘dancing days of spring’ to his present, very active, later life.
‘Inimitable... some of his best writing.’
-Martin Moran, Higher Ground
‘Eloquent and evocative.’
-Keith Partridge, The Adventure Game
‘'For anyone who, like Brown, has “always heard the two mighty voices (hills and sea) and been addicted to travelling afoot”, this is essential reading.'’
