Through 25 pieces, the writers of Moving Mountains offer a vision of nature that encompasses the close up, the microscopic, and the vast.
From the undulations of the Peak District to the decimated indigenous flora of Jakarta, from a single falling snowflake to the enormity of the north wind, this is nature experienced wholly and acutely, written from the perspective of disabled and chronically-ill authors, those for whom climbing mountains and trekking through rough terrain is often out of reach.
Edited by author Louise Kenward, Moving Mountains is not about overcoming or conquering, but about living with and connecting, shifting the reader’s attention to the things easily overlooked by those who travel through the world untroubled by the body that carries them.
