Amazon Reviews

Megan Taylor:  Whether discussing climbing, travel or relationships, Andy Miller’s unique collection is consistently lyrical and thought provoking, and often gripping. A book to repeatedly return to and to treasure”

Victoria Lewis:  This collection of stories and poems vividly paints a picture of the author’s experiences in life and love. Inspiring and entertaining, sometimes painful, but ultimately optimistic, this is a thoroughly good read”

Alastair Walker:  “Andy Miller has created an eclectic mix of prose and poetry that uses writing over a forty year period to illustrate some of the most important influences on his journey through life. Each piece is different but helps to represent a coherent set of attitudes and feelings. He is adept at bringing landscapes to life and the impact of those landscapes on people struggling to traverse them. He is even more adept, with a very light word-sketch touch, at introducing us to the character of those whom he meets. The book is both unique and excellent”
