Beyond The Dark Peak is a selection of Kevin Borman's mountain writing, most of it previously published in a wide range of magazines and journals. It's a paean of praise to the hills and an acknowledgement to the friends with whom he has shared mountain days and nights. There is poetry and prose, reminiscence and reflection, but also plenty of description, from 'an ordinary guy with the mountain bug. Not a high flier, just an enthusiast bringing together tales of hill-walking, trekking, wild camping, fell-running, in the process of exploring wild places throughout Britain and much further afield.' It's a salute to the way that hill experiences seep into your soul. All lives contain pain and joy and the hills reflect these things back to us. Perhaps the greatest pleasure is to be in the hills with a companion, whether that's a stroll up to an easy summit, an 'eyeballs out' mountain marathon, a peerless clear day on a snowy winter mountain or a night camping wild in the great beyond in a howling storm. It's about the sharing of these experiences. It is those things that this 'memoir from the hills' captures.
