'An anthology to treasure and return to' Elinor Cleghorn

'Uniquely compelling, dynamic and powerful' Lucy Jones

'Promises to change the landscape of nature writing' Lizzie Huxley-Jones

A first-of-its-kind anthology of nature writing by authors living with chronic illness and physical disability with a foreword by Samantha Walton. Through twenty-five pieces, the writers of Moving Mountains offer a vision of nature that encompasses the close up, the microscopic, and the vast. From a single falling raindrop to the enormity of the north wind, this is nature experienced wholly and acutely, written from the perspective of disabled and chronically ill authors. 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 move through the world untroubled by the body that carries them.
