On My Home Ground
By Emilie Loring
On My Home Ground recounts the adventures of Gwen Moffat, highly accomplished climber and Britain’s first female mountain guide.
On My Home Ground is a companion work to Moffat’s other autobiography, Space Below My Feet, and takes the reader into the heart of her home and life on the mountains; the constant moves for her husband’s career, the dangers of climbing that strike all too close to home and, above all, the utter joys and terrifying challenges of the UK’s true wildernesses.
Bound to appeal to climbers and non-climbers alike, On My Home Ground is an astonishing story, written by a remarkable woman.
