About The Book
In 1997, at the age of 24, Sarah lost her mother to breast cancer. Alone and adrift in the world, she very nearly gave up hope — but she’d made a promise to her mother that she would keep going no matter what. So she turned to the beautiful, dangerous, forbidding mountains of her native Scotland.
By walking in her mother’s footsteps, she learns to accept her own troubled past, finding the strength to overcome her grief — and, ultimately, to carry on in the face of her own diagnosis twenty years later.
Searingly honest and utterly relatable, bringing the exhilarating triumphs and challenges of mountain walking to life with wit, charm and raw candour, Just Another Mountain is a story of hope and redemption, of a mother and a daughter, and of how we can learn both to live and to love. Sometimes all you can do is put one foot in front of the other … and just keep walking.

‘A beautifully written book … a powerful message and a thrilling conclusion to a seemingly unachievable goal’ — Rosamund Young, author of The Secret Life of Cows
‘A story of love and loss and of the redemptive power of mountains, in particular the incomparable mountains of Scotland’ — Stephen Venables, mountaineer and writer
An excellent memoir… vivid and honest… so much more than just a book about walking and climbing in the mountains. Quite frankly it’s heart-breaking at times. Sarah Jane Douglas writes beautifully, her descriptive passages of what she sees and experiences on the mountains are some of the best I’ve read” — read-warbler.blogspot.com
