The Sunlit Summit – The Life of WH Murray byÂ Robin Lloyd-Jones
Bill Murray (no not that one) was a great champion of the natural world and the importance of wild spaces, decades before these concerns became universal. He was a pioneer of winter climbing and his book, Mountaineering in Scotland, remains a classic. But what comes across most strongly in this account of a dramatic life is his humour and his mystical response to the landscape around him. Look forward to a great read, whether Murray was already on your radar or not.
