The Hösen few
Trewsman, have you read 'Mountains of the Mind' by Macfarlane.?Every time I dip into it I think of you.
No I haven't merk but I love the title, and that makes it very likely that I'll delve into it myself.
I picked this up in the pub library and it was a revelation.I wished I could have teleported it to you because, I am sure, you have a greater basis for understanding it fully - delving in part into forays in the Peak District that you write so eloquently about.One quote from the book is by Theophile Gautier 1868 I thought of the restless passion which drives men to undertake terrific scrambles. No example can deter them ... a peak can exercise the same irrestible power of attraction as an abyssSo once again, 'Mountains of The Mind - A History of a Fascination'by Robert MacFarlane.
Thanks for that, it does sound good: I think I'll be sure to check it out.
