A classic mountaineering memoir by one of the UK's foremost female climbers.

About the Author

Gwen Moffat was the first woman to qualify as a mountain guide in the UK and is one of the greatest female climbers this country has ever produced. She is also a prolific writer and novelist, with more than 30 books to her name.


As a story of climbing and compulsive love of mountains, SPACE BELOW MY FEET is magnificent * OBSERVER *
This book is not an account of love between men and women, it is the testimony of the love one woman has for air and light and splendid, rocky, isolated spires; of wakening and feeling the hot sun on a sleeping bag, of being in a hostel watching the English getting up to open the window and the Continentals getting up to close it. Even if you have never climbed a mountain, you will enjoy this story of a brave, restless woman * SUNDAY TIMES *
A series of love affairs with impossible places ... She owns nothing. She needs nothing * DAILY HERALD *
In piquant contrast to the well-off, well-connected donnish women climbing writers of the last generation, she shows herself with painful honesty in SPACE BELOW MY FEET as rebel and vagabond * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
