A Reading List for Wild Camping in The Scottish Highlands

A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit (a much anticipated reread, and because getting lost is the whole point)
City on Fire by Garth Risk Hallberg (big enough to last me days)
Attrib by Eley Williams (short stories for short tempers)
Ariel by Sylvia Plath (a little poetry goes a long way)
Crow by Ted Hughes (packed in a separate bag to the book above, of course)
King Lear (who doesn’t want to read a Shakespearean tragedy on a stormy mountainside?) (and I know it should be Macbeth but my copy is the size of a matchbox and will surely get lost amongst the chaos of camping)
The Notebook Trilogy by Ágota Kristóf (a fractured fairytale that’s been on my list for a long time now)
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (because camping. and maybe this year I’ll read the series backwards)
