Helen Mort is a writer who infuses her poetry and fiction with a love of landscape – whether it's the city of Sheffield or the hills and rocks of the Peak District. In her latest book she sets out to understand the relationship between dogs, mountains and the people who love them. She meets search and rescue dogs, interviews climbers and spends time on the hills with hounds. The book is also a personal memoir, telling the author’s own story of falling in love with a whippet called Bell during a transformative year in the Lake District.
