Climbing Brandon
Science and Faith on Ireland’s Holy Mountain
Chet Raymo
ISBN 0863223311
Brandon 2004

Mount Brandon is one of several holy mountains in Ireland that have long attracted both believers and secular visitors. Chet Raymo has climbed it perhaps a hundred times, exploring paths that have been used for centuries by pilgrims in search of spiritual enlightenment. But the history and geography of Mount Brandon are what draw Raymo to it and offer him a lens through which to view modern conflicts between science and religion.

As he guides us up the mountain, Raymo weaves together myth and science, folklore and natural history, spiritual and physical geographies. He tells the stories of the pagan hero Bran and the Christian saint Brendan whose name the mountain evokes.
