A classic mountaineering memoir by one of the UK's foremost female climbers. 'A story of climbing and compulsive love of mountains ... magnificent' OBSERVER In 1945, when Gwen Moffat was in her twenties, she deserted from her post as a driver and dispatch rider in the Army and went to live rough in Wales and Cornwall, climbing and living on practically nothing. She hitch-hiked her way around, travelling from Skye to Chamonix and many places in between, with all her possessions on her back, although these amounted to little more than a rope and a sleeping bag. When the money ran out, she worked as a forester, went winkle-picking on the Isle of Skye, acted as the helmsman of a schooner and did a stint as an artist's model. And always there were the mountains, drawing her away from a 'proper' job. Throughout this unique story, there are acutely observed accounts of mountaineering exploits as Moffat tackles the toughest climbs and goes on to become Britain's leading female climber - and the first woman to qualify as a mountain guide.

THE. WHITE. SPACE. I cannot call this area a room, as there were no walls, no ceilings and no floor. It was the whitest ... I actually didn't look down to see if there was a definitive space below my feet, because there was no floor.

Have This Mind uses a rational, logical, and systematic approach to spirituality, religion, and God by focusing on the mind or consciousness rather than doctrine, ritual, etc. It provides a model that resolves the many seemingly conflicting views of religion and God. The four largest religions of the world, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam, are introduced in terms of their transformative dimensions that lead to an inclusive and eminently happy life. These principles and practices are illustrated with biographies of exemplary saints and sages from the traditions. Have This Mind outlines three different ways of being religious-regardless of one’s particular religious tradition-based on a progressively maturing mind. Of particular import to Christian readers are interpretations of biblical and theological views that facilitate transition from a traditional and mythic outlook tending toward exclusivism to one that is rational, transrational, and inclusive. On the basis of an appreciative and inclusive view of the world’s great religions, one discovers how these religions can actually enhance one’s own spirituality and religious outlook. A perspective central to Have This Mind is that authentic religion and spirituality lie in the loving quality of one’s life and not simply the ideas or beliefs held in one’s mind

Time on Rock

long multi-pitch mountain routes, I had grown accustomed to the feeling of space below my feet and the glimpses of vast panoramas at my side, but here, before me, where rock should meet my gaze, there was a void.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WAINWRIGHT PRIZE FOR NATURE WRITING AND THE BOARDMAN TASKER AWARD FOR MOUNTAIN LITERATURE In Time on Rock Anna Fleming charts two parallel journeys: learning the craft of traditional rock climbing, and the new developing appreciation of the natural world it brings her. Through the story of her progress from terrified beginner to confident lead climber she shows us how placing hand and foot on rock becomes a profound new way into the landscape. Anna takes us from the gritstone rocks of the Peak District and Yorkshire to the gabbro pinnacles of the Cullin, the slate of North Wales and the high plateau of the Cairngorms. Each landscape, and each type of rock, brings its own challenges and unique pleasures. She also shows us how climbing invites us into the history of a place: geologically, of course, but also culturally. This book is Anna’s journey of self-discovery, but it is also a guide to losing oneself in the greater majesty of the natural world. With great lyricism she explores how it feels to climb as a woman, about the pleasures of the physical demands of climbing, about fear and challenge, but more than anything it is about a joyful connection to the mountains.
