Pressestimmen"Hannah and the Mountain is a timeless memoir of two people's unique intersection with landscape, imagination, hope, and love. It contains hard truths and great beauty. The subject--making a life of worth and fullest possible engagement, particularly under challenging circumstances--is universal, and powerfully wrought."--Rick Bass, author of The Hermit's Story and Winter: Notes from Montana. "Hannah and the Mountain is a wonderfully troubling story of a young couple who chose to go entirely their own way. It is ultimately a love story written with great intensity and skill, and not for the faint of heart but for those who can accept the full burden of consciousness. This is a book you don't have a chance of forgetting."--Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall. "Hannah and the Mountain is a wonderfully articulated, sometimes heartbreaking but ultimately heartening, sumptuous hymn to life. Jonathan Johnson is to be congratulated and cherished."--William Kittredge, author of The Nature of Generosity and The Best Stories of William Kittredge.
