Wild Geese: A Collection of Nan Shepherd's Writing


In the 1930s, the writer and poet, Nan Shepherd was one of North-East Scotland's best known literati. Three novels - The Quarry Wood, The Weatherhouse and A Pass in the Grampians and a volume of poetry, In the Cairngorms, published between 1928 and 1934 while she was still only in her thirties - established her reputation as one of the most highly respected members of the Scottish modernist movement.

However, much of her work (including a short story, Descent from the Cross) was never published outside local magazines and journals, and are reprinted here in Wild Geese for the first time in book form.

Some of her poems in this volume also appear here for the first time
