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. 

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I loved Just Another Mountain . . . It's a really good read' - Lorraine Kelly; 'Honest, raw and beautifully written, this uplifting memoir is testament that in life there are times when there is nothing for it but to scale that mountain' - The Herald Best Summer Reads 2019; 'An inspiring book for anyone facing challenges. And a heartfelt reminder that only some mountains look like mountains' - Tristan Gooley, author of The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues & Signs and Wild Signs and Star Paths; 'A beautifully written book . . . a powerful message and a thrilling conclusion to a seemingly unachievable goal' - Rosamund Young, author of The Secret Life of Cows; 'A story of love and loss and of the redemptive power of mountains, in particular the incomparable mountains of Scotland' --Stephen Venables, mountaineer and writer; 'An excellent memoir ... vivid and honest ... so much more than just a book about walking and climbing in the mountains. Quite frankly it's heart-breaking at times. Sarah Jane Douglas writes beautifully, her descriptive passages of what she sees and experiences on the mountains are some of the best I've read" - read-warbler.blogspot.com
