AMONG THE SUMMER SNOWS

AMONG THE SUMMER SNOWS

“Strange, beautiful, eerie and unique, this is the best mountain book I’ve read in years.” 

Trail magazine

“A startlingly beautiful book . . . Mortality, aesthetic beauty, deep time and loss are themes never far from the surface in this exquisitely written book . . . Among the Summer Snows is at once haunting, moving, silent, and profoundly beautiful.” 

Alex Roddie, The Great Outdoors

“Nicholson made me laugh and cry within just a few pages . . . left me humbled as he revealed a range of other interconnected wonders I never knew about . . . a wrong-footing marvel of a book.” 

David Robinson, Books from Scotland
