"Elegiac, original and memorable, these poems uncover the private maps and ghost-bearings that guide us in the mountains, creating their own vivid geology." -- Helen Mort, on Translating Mountains

'Reddick sets a sombre music behind the rawness of loss, like a glimpse of her mountains in the distance.' - PN Review

'It's impossible to read this collection without being moved.' - New Welsh Review

'This is a beautifully structured pamphlet that offers the reader a deeply felt sufficiency' - WriteOutLoud

'This first book-length collection from Reddick is as lyrical as it is defiant. A collection that confronts climate change, a world in flames and societies on the verge of collapse, told through an exploration of family history. This is an incredible exploration of the oil industry.' - Mairi Oliver of Lighthouse Bookshop, The Bookseller (Scottish books preview)
