WIN a copy of
Waymaking: An Anthology of Women’s Adventure Writing, Poetry and Art
Edited by Helen Mort, Claire Carter, Heather Dawe and Camilla Barnard

Waymaking is an anthology of prose, poetry and artwork by women who are inspired by wild places, adventure and landscape.

Published in 1961, Gwen Moffat’s Space Below My Feet tells the story of a woman who shirked the conventions of society and chose to live a life in the mountains. Some years later in 1977, Nan Shepherd published The Living Mountain, her prose bringing each contour of the Cairngorm mountains to life. These pioneering women set a precedent for a way of writing about wilderness that isn’t about conquering landscapes or reaching higher, but instead about living and breathing beside them, becoming part of a larger adventure.

 

 

 

The artists in this inspired collection continue Gwen and Nan’s legacies, redressing the balance of gender in outdoor adventure literature. With contributions from adventurers including Alpinist magazine editor Katie Ives, multi-award winning author Bernadette McDonald, renowned filmmaker Jen Randall and many more, Waymaking is an inspiring and pivotal work published in an era when wilderness conservation and gender equality are at the fore.
