Ring the Hill

£9.99

A hill is not a mountain. You climb it for you, then you put it quietly inside you, in a cupboard marked ‘Quite A Lot Of Hills’ where it makes its infinitesimal mark on who you are.

Ring the Hill is a book written around, and about, hills: it includes anorthern hill, a hill that never ends and the smallest hill in England.

Each chapter takes a type of hill – whether it’s a knoll, cap, cliff, tor or even a mere bump – as a starting point for one of Tom’s characteristically unpredictable and wide-ranging explorations. Tom’s lyrical, candid prose roams from an intimate relationship with a particularcove on the south coast, to meditations on his great-grandmother and a lesson onwhat goes into the mapping of hills themselves. Because a good walk in the hills is never just about the hills: you never know where it might lead.
