The Living Mountain – On Our Relationship With The Wild World Around Us
Patricia Hurducas continues her exploration: What is it about mountains that awakens the human mind’s playfulness and curiosity? What is awe? Should Thoreau’s Walden be more widely read…?
“I knew when I had looked for a long time that I had hardly begun to see.”
On the second part of the Mountains Are Calling ii Salon series we will examine our relationship with nature by looking closely at Nan Shepherd’s book The Living Mountain.
In this masterpiece of nature writing, Nan Shepherd describes her journeys into the Cairngorm mountains of Scotland. Her poetic prose explores and records the rocks, rivers, creatures and the ever-changing landscape. During the salon we will discuss the symbolism of mountains, nature writing, the philosophy of walking, and our own relationship with the wild world around us.
Reading the book is not mandatory, but it is encouraged. During the salon paragraphs from the book will be shared among the participants in order to facilitate the discussion for those who have not read the book.
