  • Fresh and completely engaging ... [Cognetti] has a studied simplicity that is suggestive of a mountaineer's ascetic temperament and the writing also feels perfectly adjusted to the daunting character of Dolpo... [a] captivating travelogue

    Mark Cocker, Spectator
  • A breath of fresh air for mountain-lovers currently in confinement, this slim, elegant account follows Cognetti's trek through the remote Dolpo region of northwestern Nepal... The sparse, graceful prose...reflects the barren landscape and the author's joy in paring back the distractions of modern life

    Tom Robbins, Financial Times, *Books of the Year*
