John D. Burns is a bestselling and award-winning mountain writer who has spent over forty years exploring Britain's mountains. He is a past member of the Cairngorms Mountain Rescue team and has walked and climbed in the American and Canadian Rockies, Kenya, the Alps and the Pyrenees. His books are inspired by his journeys and explorations in the hills of the highlands.
The Last Hillwalker is a personal story of falling in and out of love with the hills. More than that, it is about rediscovering a deeply felt need in all of us to connect with wild places. In Bothy Tales, Burns shares a volume of stories – some dramatic, some moving, some hilarious – from the Highland's isolated mountain shelters. In Sky Dance he returns to the Scottish mountains to ask fundamental questions about what kind of future we want for the Highlands now that wild land is threatened like never before; and in Wild Winter, John sets out to rediscover Scotland’s mountains, remote places and wildlife in the darkest and stormiest months.
John D. Burns is a bestselling and award-winning mountain writer who has spent over forty years exploring Britain’s mountains. Originally from Merseyside, he moved to Inverness over thirty years ago to follow his passion for the hills. He is a past member of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team and has walked and climbed in the American and Canadian Rockies, Kenya, the Alps and the Pyrenees. John began writing more than fifteen years ago, and at first found an outlet for his creativity as a performance poet. He has taken one-man plays to the Edinburgh Fringe and toured them widely around theatres and mountain festivals in the UK. It is the combination of John’s love of the outdoors with his passion for writing and performance that makes him a uniquely powerful storyteller. His first two books, The Last Hillwalker and Bothy Tales, were both shortlisted for TGO Magazine’s Outdoor Book of the Year. His third book, Sky Dance, is published in 2019.
