Walking the Song
By (author) Hamish Brown
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.
Hamish Brown is a legendary climber, walker, traveller and author. He is the author and editor of many books, including Tom Weir, an anthology of work selected from throughout the great man’s life which provide a vivid self-portrait. Sandstone Press publishes Hamish’s three classic outdoor books, Hamish’s Mountain Walk, Hamish’s Groats End Walk and Climbing the Corbetts.
