Hill-walking was Shepherd's great love; her single collection of poetry In the Cairngorms (1934) expresses an intensity of deep kinship with nature. They are poems written with the perception of one who has climbed the mountains and truly knows them. The poetry has many religious notes - references to 'the Light' and 'the Presence' in the hills; though these references could seem Christian, they are perhaps expressions of a broader spirituality - Shepherd herself likened her journey to a Buddhist pilgrimage. This volume speaks to lovers of poetry and of nature.
