Waterstones Says

Both a poignant memoir of grief and redemption and a gloriously evocative account of mountain climbing in the Scottish Highlands, Sarah Jane Douglas’s exquisitely written volume is a truly inspirational read. Facing the loss of her mother to cancer, Douglas turns to climbing as a coping mechanism and means of distraction. Just Another Mountain is as far from being just another autobiography as it is possible to get. 

Waterstones Scottish Book of the Month for April 2020 

In 1997, at the age of 24, Sarah lost her mother to breast cancer. Alone and adrift in the world, she very nearly gave up hope, but she'd made a promise to her mother that she would keep going no matter what. So she turned to the beautiful, dangerous, forbidding mountains of her native Scotland.
