This week we have three copies to give away of The Joy of High Places a soaring new memoir about longing, resilience and delight in the natural world, from Australia’s foremost memoirist, Patti Miller.  

In this extraordinary and unexpected book, Patti tells the story of her own long-distance walking over hundreds of kilometres in Europe and of her brother's obsession with paragliding.

For Patti, walking is a radical act – a return to what has made us all human – that bestows a connection to nature and to creativity itself. But as she listens to her pragmatic and methodical brother tell his story, she learns that flying is his door to untrammelled joy too. She realises that she is ‘meeting' him for the very first time.

This beautiful and inspiring book tells their story and reveals that the siblings share a willingness to take risks and an indefatigable determination. With rare insight and poetic writing,The Joy of High Places combines physical adventure with a powerful emotional journey.
