Death in Deia

Paperback
by Coubrough, David
Deia is a small and idyllic village on the north-west coast of Mallorca, made famous by being the home of Robert Graves for much of his life, but subsequently becoming a magnet for artists, authors and film stars (and latterly a location in the BBC thriller series, The Night Manager).

Wild Geese: A Collection of Nan Shepherd's Writing

Hardback
by Shepherd, Nan
It will come as a very pleasant surprise to Nan Shepherd’s growing following that there is a body of her work which has never been published in book form, and indeed will be entirely unknown outside a very small circle. The editor of this volume, Charlotte Peacock, found many of these gems when researching for the Nan Shepherd biography Into the Mountain, published by Galileo in 2017.

John Muir: A Miscellany

Paperback
by Muir, John
The tendency nowadays to wander in wilderness is delightful to see. Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life. The words could have been written yesterday, in any pa...
