Press Reviews

'Jim Perrin is an alchemist. He takes the base metal of his own experience and, in retorts fuelled by the power of his observation and skill with language, transmutes it into prose that coruscates with spirit and meaning.' Jamie Jauncey, the Scotsman 'Jim Perrin, Britain's finest outdoor essayist, has won popular admiration for his funny, furious, erudite, beautiful style.' Robert Macfarlane, Guardian Review 6th December, 2003
